Supply Chain & Local Products

We enable Destination Management Organisations to support the many small businesses that provide products and services to tourists.  This includes building local people’s skills and confidence to access the international tourism market so that they gain secure incomes and building the capacity of tourism businesses to take climate action.

We have worked with accommodation providers, excursion providers, those making and selling crafts, food producers, restaurant owners and more.

Some of our projects have focused specifically on making excursions more sustainable in a destination, through training tour guides and working with governments.
