Responsible Tourism Promoting Local Livelihoods

CBGA actively promotes community-based eco-tourism. We facilitate access to remote villages and encourage community participation in the decision-making process and the management of such enterprises. With this kind of initiative, we can improve and sustain a way of life for people inside the protected areas.

We believe this kind of responsible tourism, running alongside our conservation and education programs, is the best way to preserve the Cambodian countryside.  This contributes to a sustainable existence for people living in the conservation areas. It also allows us to the opportunity to collect information and monitor any changes to the local environment.

What we have done

  • Support local communities in setting up eco-tourism sites
  • Provide a site study and survey for birds and wildlife
  • Promote and develop sustainable eco-tourism in local villages
  • Train local communities in tourism services such as cooking, housekeeping and local guiding
  • Advise local people on managing their finances, in relation to running an eco-tourism venture
  • Support the community in building eco-lodges and other infrastructure
  • Taking tourists to visit these communities
