The Role of International Conservation Organizations in Tourism Promotion and Human Development in Kenya: Case Study of Amboseli Ecosystem
The tourism sector represents one of the fastest developing and largest sectors in the globe’s political economy. Currently, tourism industry is becoming a significant sector within the economy of various developing nations such as Kenya. The primary objective of this research is to examine the role of international conservation organisations in promoting tourism and human development in the Amboseli ecosystem, Kenya. There are several literatures on tourism as well as its link to economic prosperity and how it promotes various nations’ global GDP. However, limited research has been conducted on how tourism promotes human development. The aspect of sustainability has forced international conservations organisations to obtain significant involvement in tourism activities. Also, the lacks of human development policies have been experienced amidst various challenges. Studies on human development in Kenya are scarce. This is defined by the limited development-oriented policies that define the course of human development. This study is to significantly contribute to the conservation as well as the sustainable utilisation of natural resources. This study seeks to adopt the descriptive study methodology with a sample size selected non-randomly from the Amboseli community. Both questionnaires and interviews are to be used in collecting data. The finding shows that there is a link between tourism and human welfare. Also, it indicates that sustainable tourism promotion needs to account for economic, social and environmental impacts for its success. While international conservation organisations face various challenges like lack of strong administrations, they promote tourism and human development through promoting sustainable reforms. This project on the role of international conservation organisations provides a significant illustration of the research carried out on tourism promotion and human development in the Amboseli ecosystem of Kenya. Additionally, it focuses on the responsibilities of the international conservation organisation, the challenges they face as well as the interventions that have been put in place.
