Description of project:
The Experience Nariva project will design and implement a community-based ecotourism model for conservation in the Nariva Swamp Protected Area (NSPA), designated a wetland of international significance under the Ramsar Convention, and surrounding communities on the south-east coast of Trinidad.
The project aims to support the transformation of the local eco-tourism offerings, from an ad hoc development to a more coordinated, sustainable and inclusive model, involving micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and one that promotes the conservation of the NSPA, its natural resources and the communities around it.
See project page for more information.
