GIZ “Destination Mutual Benefit” – Building the Case for Inclusive Tourism

Speaker: Sarah Schwepcke – Southeast Asia Lead Responsible and Inclusive Business Hubs (RIBH), GIZ

The mutual benefit approach to tourism development seeks to include local development objectives in business development plans. Through this approach local people become active partners in their own development with conscientious tourism businesses who in turn can provide richer experiences for the customers.

This session will showcase lessons learned from tourism companies that have made their business more experiential yet more inclusive and sustainable.
