Kick off meeting of project MOST in Tashkent


We have started a new project "A model for sustainable tourism in Central Asia: Building capacities, creating awareness, introducing technology" (MOST).

The project aims:

  • to promote a new and well-structured model for sustainable tourism in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan that can contribute to preserving and strengthening local culture, heritage and traditions, while also protecting the natural environment;
  • to support tourism companies mainly in Uzbekistan, but also in Tajikistan and Kazakhstan to adopt (SCP) practices by providing appropriate knowledge and ICT tools;
  • to support regional and local authorities to plan and implement policies that assist the development of sustainable tourism;
  • to raise awareness regarding sustainable tourism and consumer awareness about sustainable consumption;
  • to strengthen the dialogue between authorities, SMEs and end users as concerns SCP.

The kick off meeting took place on February 3rd 2020 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. During the meeting partners went through the objectives, work plan and time schedule. It was also as a workshop among partners to identify the stakeholders to be engaged in the project and multiply its impact, as well as to analyse and update external contextual factors that may have an impact (positive or negative) to the project implementation.
