CamConscious is a Cambodian-based initiative of international NGO solely focused on the development of sustainable tourism in Cambodia.
CamConscious is a Cambodian-based international NGO solely focused on the development of sustainable tourism in Cambodia. We do not run our own eco-tourism sites or home-stay schemes, instead we focus on building the capacity of the sector and bring people together to achieve a greater impact for local communities and the environment. Our organisation strongly believes that sustainable tourism can be used as an effective tool for sustainable development. A tool that provides alternative livelihoods through sustainable community based tourism projects that increase income and reduce poverty for poor rural communities - especially for women and young people.
Our Objectives are:
Promote sustainable eco-tourism and community based tourism in Cambodia
Act as an information platform for local and international tourists and provide visitors with comprehensive information about ecotourism and community based tourism in Cambodia, and by doing so, help visitors to make informed choices about their planned visit in order to minimise the negative impact of tourism.
Build the capacity of individuals, local communities, CBO and NGOs to in order to build financially viable and sustainable models of eco-tourism and community based tourism in Cambodia.
