Eco Tourism

Global economists forecast continuing international tourism growth, the amount depending on the location. As one of the world's largest and fastest growing industries, this continuous growth is expected to place great stress on biologically diverse habitats and indigenous cultures, which are often used to support mass tourism. Sustainable tourism (read eco tourism) is tourism attempting to make as low impact on the environment and local culture as possible, while helping to generate future employment for local people. The aim of sustainable tourism is to ensure that development brings a positive experience for local people, tourism companies and the tourists themselves.

India offers vast tourism opportunities with its diversity in cultures, traditions, festivals, and places of interest and is the second-fastest growing tourism market in the world. Tourism in India is the largest service industry contributing up to 6.23 per cent to the National Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and providing 8.78 per cent of the total employment opportunities in India. India's travel and tourism industry is one of the most profitable industries in the country. Realizing the potential of this upcoming market, IFMR Trust has invested Rs. 50 million in the Rural Tourism Network Enterprise (RTNE).
