Module 8: Session 3
covers the “Risks” that tourism can pose across snow leopard landscapes, especially if not managed ethically. We then discuss the strategies we can use to ‘mitigate’ these risks and the roles that different stakeholders can play in mitigating this risks.
Session 3.1: Introduction to risks
Session 3.2: Discussion on potential risks
Session 3.3: Mitigate risks
Session 3.4: Approaches to mitigate risks
- What are the social, economic and ecological risks posed by conservation led tourism?
- The major risks are all caused by a lack of planning, and a community responding haphazardly to a market driven demand for wildlife tourism.
- MITIGATE THESE RISKS BY:
- Assessing potential of snow leopard tourism at a regional level.
- Developing a mechanism to address failure of systems and/or stakeholders.
