  3. 3. <ul><ul><li>GUIDING CONCERNS OF THE PROJECT </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sustainable tourism is envisaged as leading to management of all resources in such a way that economic, social and aesthetic needs can be fulfilled while maintaining cultural integrity, essential ecological processes, biological diversity and life support systems - United Nations World Tourism Organization </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ECO _TOURISM </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Minimize Impact, Build Awareness & Respect </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ecotourism is about uniting conservation, communities, and sustainable travel.

  4. 4. <ul><ul><li>SOME KEY FEATURES BEING INTEGRATED THE PROJECT INCLUDE: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>TRADITIONAL LAND USE </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The land that the resort is being developed on was traditionally a farm land.
