Tourism for Tomorrow Awards

Namibia’s Communal Conservancy Tourism Sector was proud to be a finalist in the Community Benefits category for the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) 2010 Tourism for Tomorrow Awards.

Since 2003, under WTTC’s stewardship, the prestigious Awards have recognized best practice in sustainable tourism in four different categories – Destination Stewardship, Conservation, Community Benefit and Global Tourism Business. In 2010, over 160 entries were received from over 45 countries.

The 12 finalists were selected by an international team of independent judges in each of the four award categories for having successfully demonstrated sustainable tourism practices, including the protection of natural and cultural heritage, social and economic benefits to local people, and environmentally friendly operations.
