Ecotourism as an Alternative to Upland Rubber Cultivation in the Nam Ha National Protected Area, Luang Namtha

បោះពុម្ពផ្សាយដោយ៖ Open Development Laos

Tourism arrivals in Laos continue to rise, reaching over one million people in 2005. It seems that visitors are primarily interested in the country’s natural and cultural attractions. There is concern now that forested lands used for community based ecotourism may be earmarked for conversion to rubber plantations. Since 2002, both ecotourism and rubber cultivation have become important economic activities in Luang Namtha province. This paper reports on the financial benefits that ecotourism is generating around the Nam Ha NPA, arguing that it generates financial benefits for local people while protecting the environment and culture of Laos. Rubber may provide less profit and negatively affects national biodiversity. It is concluded that ecotourism activities and rubber plantations can both be conducted viably, but not in the same immediate areas.
