Planning for Sustainable Tourism in MPAs: ETPS Training 1, Isla Gorgona, Colombia November 6-18th, 2006

NOAA, in a joint effort with Conservation International, UNESCO, National Parks of Colombia, and the Malpelo Foundation, conducted a Planning for Sustainable Tourism Management Capacity Building training on Gorgona Island in Colombia from November 6-18th, 2006. The forty workshop participants included managers, staff, and sustainable tourism operators from marine and terrestrial protected areas in Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama and Ecuador. Each of the ten participating sites developed a framework for addressing their priority tourism issues. From this framework, each site developed a demonstration project that will be implemented over the next year, with quarterly reporting to the group on progress made. Below you will find the curriculum materials for the workshop in English and Spanish as well as instructor biographies and examples of site demonstration projects.
