African Nature Based Tourism Platform: Data to Impact - 2023

The African Nature-Based Tourism Platform worked with partners in Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe to conduct surveys assessing the impact of COVID-19 on communities and small to medium enterprises (SMEs) within the nature-based tourism sector. To date, the Platform has conducted 687 surveys across its 11 target countries.

Leveraging this survey data, the Platform has collaborated with partners to develop community-led and designed grant proposals. This collaborative approach has resulted in the mobilization of significant funding going directly to community-based organizations.
