WMPA is currently developing the Nakai Nam Theun National Protected Area pilot community-based ecotourism site in collaboration with local stakeholders. Ecotourism will be used as a tool directly linked with conservation to provide villagers with the incentives to support an environmentally sustainable supplemental livelihood. The vision of WMPA is that communities in and surrounding the Nakai Nam Theun Watershed have an understanding of conservation and actively contribute to the protection, rehabilitation and promotion of biodiversity. Watch this space for more information on upcoming trial tours.
