Basecamp Explorer Kenya

Comments Off on Basecamp Explorer Kenya

Svein Wilhelmsen founded Basecamp Explorer in 1998, following a meeting with Maasai elder, Chief Ole Taek in Kenya about threats to his people and lands. Wilhelmsen’s mission was to set up a company to care for both. Eagle View camp in the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, Kenya, best illustrates this, where five hundred Maasai families gave their land in trust and, in return, receive a monthly income. This community owned model ensures wildlife conservation, supported by a Basecamp ecological learning centre for local students, an empowerment ethos that also embraces 118 Maasai women, who create crafts for the Basecamp Maasai craft brand, assisted by community managed micro-finance (CMMF) programs. In terms of community support, this camp certainly does have all bases covered.

Comments Off on Asilia Africa

As it enters its tenth year of business, Asilia Africa boasts a Big Five that is about so much more than wildlife. Community, conservation, capacity, certification and commitment are five core principles running through Asilia. With thirteen properties in Tanzania, Kenya and Mozambique, it employs 600 people and operates in critical conservation areas where both wildlife and local economies are under threat.

By investing in conservation economies Asilia merits not only its high rating by the Global Impact Investing Ratings System and B Corporation but also its status within a growing community of conscious companies to watch, learn from and invest in.

Diversification of Tourism Offers in Tunisia

Comments Off on Diversification of Tourism Offers in Tunisia

Development of sustainable concepts for Sahara tourism in the Tozeur region

In the last decades tourism has become one of the most important sectors of the Tunisian economy. In 2010 international arrivals reached almost 7 million and over 35 million overnight stays were registered, with tourism generating 8.5% of gross domestic product and 17% of foreign currency earnings. Taking into account its indirect effects, tourism at that point had created approximately half a million jobs, representing a 15% share of the total. However, tourism in Tunisia has focused mainly on developing all-inclusive resorts stretching along the east coast of the country.

This study by McKinsey & Company looks at a number of scenarios and responses, enablers and barriers, and finally the impacts and adaptations of power generation and health.
