Hotel Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra

September 15 - 17, 2014



The International Conference on Community Development Through Tourism will be held at the Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra from September 16-17, in conjunction with the PATA Travel Mart 2014.

The International Conference on Community Development through Tourism has been organized by the Cambodian Ministry of Tourism to provide a forum to discuss Community-based Tourism (CBT).  The two day programme will include presentations of successful examples of CBT, examination of the mechanisms (both institutional and practical) that have led to successful implementation, discussion of the actors involved and analysis of the lessons learned.  The successful examples discussed and evaluated during the conference will be bought together to form a set of over-arching guidelines for tourism development, known as the Phnom Penh Declaration on Community Development through Tourism.

Community-based Tourism (CBT) is a form of sound environmental sustainable and socially responsible tourism development, which has the potential to contribute substantially to local socioeconomic development, conservation, protection of natural and cultural resources and poverty reduction. 

The conference will showcase the vital role of environmentally sustainable and socially responsible tourism development, in the area of water based tourism, tourism best practise, heritage conservation, education, community health, and primary production.

The speaker programme has been developed with the Cambodian Ministry of Tourism, PATA, and UNWTO in order to involve speakers from a wide range of markets and backgrounds, both in the public and private sector.
