We want to have sustainable fisheries in the country, while tourism is one way of the benefit the coastal communities and not a hindrance to their livelihoods, land and human rights as a whole. We need to have a dialogue among all the parties engage in tourism and also responsible the well being of coastal communities including fishing communities. We are organizing a round table dialogue for this and we want to achieve through a dialogue among policy makers, tourism bureaucrats, fisher folk, civil society groups, investors, hoteliers etc.
Therefore, we are inviting you to take part in a round table discussion with the fishermen, farmers, hoteliers, investors and civil society groups in order to sort out and mitigate the issues on promoting tourism industry through a dialogue. Our dialogue will be based on the research NAFSO conducted in collaboration with Society for the Threatened People [STP], Switzerland.
