Community-based ecotourism for Palawan

Many of the resorts currently under construction on Busuanga will be hiring Filipinos from urban centres with relevant qualifications in tourism and hospitality; unfortunately, fewer jobs will be accessible to less-educated residents of Busuanga, such as farmers and fishers who actually may contribute most to environmental degradation issues, leading to exclusion and lack of equitable distribution of the income that tourism brings.

We are addressing this issue by providing the means and training for local people, especially youth, fishers and women, to enter the sustainable tourism sector, livelihoods will be created and value added to their potential engagement by the resorts for offering environmental and cultural experiences for their visitors.
