The new World Bank report, “Banking on Protected Areas: Promoting Sustainable Protected Area Tourism to Benefit Local Communities,” is being launched on June 14, 2021. The report estimates the economic impact of tourism in protected areas on the local economies and makes the case that the promotion of sustainable tourism in protected areas should be actively included in economic development and recovery strategies given its ability to support economic growth, generate jobs and conserve biodiversity

Join World Bank Global Director for the Environment, Natural Resources and the Blue Economy Karin Kemper for the launch of report.  A presentation on the main findings of the report will be followed by a panel discussion, moderated by the Regional Director of Sustainable Development for Eastern and Southern Africa Mark Lundell on the relevance of the report’s findings for economic recovery programs with government officials from Argentina, Nepal and Zambia.
