Description The proposed Community-Based Tourism for Cultural Conservation Project will preserve and promote cultural resources in Cambodia's rural communities through community-based tourism. Project locations will be confirmed during project preparation. The project will (i) strengthen local capacity for community-based tourism development and promotion; (ii) support new and existing tourism and livelihood activities; and (iii) enhance community-based public facilities and services.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Cambodia is endowed with numerous heritage sites that draw over six million foreign visitors annually. Currently tourism is overconcentrated in Siem Reap Province, which leads to imbalanced growth across provinces, and creates mounting pressure on the Siem Reap heritage sites. While there are heritage sites outside Siem Reap Province, when tourism visits are made they are often daytrips that start and end in tourist hubs. Despite proximity to heritage sties, the surrounding villages are barely visited, and villagers cannot participate in the tourist trade which is monopolized by outsider tour operators.
Impact Tourism recovery promoted in project villages; tourism destinations diversified (Tourism Development Strategic Plan 2012-2020)
Outcome Income increased and tourism developed in project villages
