Communications WG meeting in Marseille and visits to two new DestiMED Pilot Parks, Calaque National Park and Camargue Nature Park
During the week of 22 January, DestiMED visited Marseille for a series of communications meetings, which were hosted by Project Partner and IUCN member, MedPAN. DestiMED also participated in meetings with representatives and service providers from two new pilot parks, Calaque National Park and Camargue Nature Park, for product development and management in preparation to develop new packages in 2018.
Both parks will be developing and testing new ecotourism packages in the coming months which highlight the unique natural and cultural assets of the territory, while raising awareness of both local and international travelers to support conservation efforts. The two pilot parks will join the other 11 parks in DestiMED to receive feedback on their packages from international ecotourism experts, hone the skills of their local private sector partners and monitor the quality and environmental impact of their packages.
