ECOTOURISM and COVID-19

On April 1, 2020, UNWTO called for solid international leadership and for tourism to be included as a priority in future recovery efforts. UNWTO also calls upon the sector and travelers to address this challenge with sound judgment and proportionate measures. We, AEN, have taken this to our heart and decided that we share how the ecotourism industry is coping with the situation and identify what we can do to survive through the challenges and enhance opportunities when things come back to order.

Talk on Strategies on survival for strong recovery

COVID-19 is disruptor of seismic proportion. We were projecting another year of growth and profit for 2020. Within months the world was turned upside down. 45 days of lockdown was imposed on all from 18th March and companies were required by law to give full pay to staff for not working when there was no income. Cash was leaking fast. How to stop the bleeding while reducing the staff from 152 to 51 and managing our losses and work the strategies for a strong recovery at the same time based on our core values is our story.
