The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MoECC) in collaboration with Qatar Tourism (QT) is intensifying their efforts to create additional ecotourism destinations across Qatar. This strategic move aims to harness the country’s immense tourism potential, particularly its natural attractions like sand dunes, mangrove forests, and pristine coasts.
Key highlights of this ecotourism development initiative include:
- Common Vision for Ecotourism: The meeting held at MoECC brought together important stakeholders, including Minister of Environment and Climate Change H E Sheikh Dr. Faleh bin Nasser bin Ahmed bin Ali Al Thani and Chairman of Qatar Tourism H E Saad bin Ali bin Saad Al Kharji. During the discussions, a shared vision for the development of ecotourism sites across the nation was emphasized.
- Supporting Qatar National Vision 2030: The focus on stimulating ecotourism aligns with Qatar’s broader development plans and the vision laid out in Qatar National Vision 2030. It underscores the commitment to preserving the natural and cultural heritage of the country while promoting sustainable tourism.
- Benefits of Ecotourism: Ecotourism offers a range of benefits, extending beyond environmental conservation to encompass economic and cultural advantages. It provides opportunities for visitors to learn about Qatar’s rich biodiversity, natural environments, and unique landscapes.
