Tourism Policy

ATTOI takes into account the interconnected environmental, socio-cultural and economic aspects of tourism, creating better places for people to live in, and better places to visit. ATTOI aims to provide the required support for the promotion of Ecotourism, Responsible Tourism and Sustainable Tourism practices.

ATTOI encourages its members to practice Ecotourism as they individually see appropriate. Through Ecotourism what ATTOI aims to achieve is environmentally responsible travel to natural areas, to enjoy and appreciate nature, promote conservation and provide for beneficially active socio-economic involvement of local people. Our Ecotourism policy includes:

  • Low-impact visitor behavior
  • Appreciation of, local cultures and biodiversity
  • Support for local conservation efforts
  • Sustainable benefits to local communities
  • Local participation in decision-making
  • Educational benefits for traveler and local communities

Responsible Tourism is treating others the way they wish to be treated. All tourism related activity potentially has an Environmental, Social and Economic impact on the destination involved. ATTOI therefore accepts that they aim to be responsible in all their dealings on each of these three levels. To help them do so they have proposed a set of guidelines to all members intended to recognise their common responsibilities to:

  • Protect the environment – its flora, fauna and landscapes
  • Respect local cultures – traditions, religions and built heritage
  • Benefit local communities – both economically and socially
  • Conserve natural resources – from office to destination
  • Minimise pollution – through noise, waste disposal and congestion
With Sustainable tourism policy ATTOI attempts to make a low impact on the environment and local culture, while helping to generate income, employment, and the conservation of local ecosystems. Sustainable Tourism is responsible tourism that is both ecologically and culturally sensitive and includes:

  • Maintaining the importance of local culture and tradition
  • Providing information on the destinations and also helps locals to know about the culture and civilisation of tourists.
  • Aims to conserve the resources of destinations where one is visiting
  • Seeks deeper involvement of locals, and provides them opportunity to make their living.
  • Stresses upon integrity of the tourist places
