Third steering committee meeting of the project "MOST"


The team of the project “A model for sustainable tourism in Central Asia: Building capacities, creating awareness, introducing technology” (MOST) met on 17th and 18th of March for the third steering committee meeting. Some of the partners went to Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan, and some of the partners joined via Zoom platform. On the first day, the partners informed about the completed tasks. As planned, in the second year of the project, local entrepreneurs were supported to move towards to more sustainable delivery of their services. Appropriate equipment, support for marketing activities and cooperation opportunities, as well as information on European good practices and funding opportunities at both EU and international level were provided. Entrepreneurs had the opportunity to participate in various discussions with state departments, as well as in seminars with industry professionals who shared their experiences.

In the third (and final) year of the project, seminars on sustainable consumption in tourism are planned, as well as discussions between entrepreneurs and local governments to strengthen their cooperation. Policy recommendations and improvement of legislative framework will be prepared for Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. Guidelines on sustainability in the tourism sector will also be developed and a campaign will be launched to promote it.
"Lauku ceļotājs" will continue to share its knowledge on sustainable tourism and environmentally friendly management. We will also be involved in the development of marketing activities to promote the project and its results to a wider audience.
