According to the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), tourism is one of the fastest growing industries, contributing to employment and stability in almost every part of the world. Since 1975, Chemonics’ inclusive and sustainable development has strengthened tourism in more than 56 countries. Our tourism activities touch upon all five of the UNWTO themes for sustainable tourism for development. We have supported small tourism enterprises with accessible finance, created stable careers through skills-based training for women and youth, increased cultural understanding using foreign investment and travel, and promoted environmental conservation by protecting natural tourist sites. We understand tourism’s potential to advance employment and stability significantly, and we draw from our experience across all sectors in the programs we implement to make what is possible a reality.
