PAPUA New GuineaPAPUA New Guinea is all prepared to create sustainable tourism via APEC and adopting community approach to develop tourism solutions. While speaking at the Tourism Working Group workshop on sustainable tourism in Nha Trang, Vietnam, Ms Alcinda Trawen, from the Tourism Promotion Authority (TPA) cited two successful Papua New Guinea case studies to tourism officials from APEC’s 20 other members.

The case studies covered sustainable tourism project in Kimbe in West New Province and the development of the Tupira Surf Club, on the North Coast of Madang Province. Both the projects were created under TPA’s authentic model known as Community Based Locally Managed Area (CBLA) which involves the protection of the environment, culture and boost tourism sustainability.


To quote Ms. Trawen, ‘’ We don’t proclaim to have the best community-based case studies in the region, but our examples and case studies that are based on real-world experience and organic to our own environment. In PNG, our departments that are responsible for Climate Change and Tourism are working in parallel and are enhancing common strength between the two sectors.’’
