Reinhard Hohler, Chiang Mai (17.09.2013)
The prestigious 5th World Ecotourism Conference 2013,empowering sustainable tourism development in developing countries, will be organised by the Philippine Department of Tourism and DISCOVERYMICE, Malaysia, in collaboration with UNWTO and supported by PATA.

Under the theme "Marine & Coastal Ecotourism: Oceans of Uncertainties, Waves of Opportunities" the event will be held in Cebu, Philippines on November 13-15, 2013.  

It was announced that some 300 international marine conservation experts, ecotourism practitioners, marine park managers and tourism consultants from around the world will congregate in Cebu, Philippines to address the most pressing sustainability issues and challenges threatening the environment, marine life, ecotourism industry and livelihoods of poor coastal communities today.
Also, there will be discussions to champion sustainable tourism partnerships, regional ecotourism policies and investment initiatives that will bring transformational changes for the betterment of local economies, people and environment.

Thus, the upcoming 5th World Ecotourism Conference serves as a high level public-private sector forum to guide sound policies that will articulate with the importance of ecotourism and conservation in marine and coastal areas such as the scuba diving industry's sites, marine protected parks and wildlife sanctuaries.

The Philippines has 240 protected areas covering a total area of 35,700 square kilometers, about 11.9% of its total land area. The warm hospitality of its people, the wealth of natural and cultural resources, and attention on sustainable development accorded by the Philippines Government, would truly make your stay in Philippines worthwhile. If you have not visited the world renowned wonders of Bohol, Cebu, Boracay and Palawan, this is the perfect opportunity to visit the Philippines and be fascinated by its fascinating culture and abundance of wildlife.
