BACKGROUND

More than 170 people from around the globe took part in the NGOs in Tourism and Conservation Conference that took place online in October and November 2002.

The NGOs in Tourism and Conservation Conference examined the role of non-profits and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Participants reviewed how stakeholders interact with other sectors including business, government, academia, media and the general public.

 

Two of the immediate products of the conference were an index of ngo/non-profit players and a summary of key points.

The NGOs in Tourism and Conservation Conference was Planeta.com's 11th online event and co-sponsored by ECOCLUB.com, International Centre for Ecotourism Research, Latin America Bureau, Mexicanwave, Rainforest Alliance, Sustainable Sources and Travelmole.


QUESTIONS

Reflect upon the following questions:

What is the role of NGOs in the tourism and conservation?

How are the leaders of tourism and conservation projects within NGOs treated by their internal organization?

What are the best-case examples of collaboration among NGOs and other stakeholders?

What criteria are used to evaluate NGO work?

Do non-profits compete unfairly with for-profits in sustainable tourism operations?

How are effective are NGO websites?

To whom are NGOs accountable?

Have NGOs/non-profits changed their operations in the past five years?

What future changes are likely?
