Social inclusiveness, employment and poverty reduction 3. Resource efficiency, environmental protection and climate change 4. Cultural values, diversity and heritage 5.

ECOTOURISM IN INDIA India is known for its large ecosystems including : - 661 protected areas with 100 national parks - 514 wildlife sanctuaries - 43 conservation reserves and four community reserves in different geographic zones The Indian Government’s National 12th Five Year Plan (2012-17) targets to increase the net benefit of tourism activities for the poor, emphasising also that the revenue generated from tourism operations should be utilised for protected area management (India Tourism 2011). Government'al action at both the national and local levels has enhanced ecotourism operations to ecologically sensitive areas where attention has been given to conservation and development with the support of the local community. For instance, in 2007 at the Kumarakom bird sanctuary in Kerala, hotels established linkages to local communities for the supply of seven types of local products. By 2010, the number of items had increased to 45 including some agro-based industrial products like coconut oil, souvenirs and handicrafts. The economic linkages encouraged partnerships between the community and the industry, thereby helping the community to develop a sustainable market with fair prices for the local produce and increased production. A few examples of initiatives taken by individuals and Industry counterparts to promote Ecotourism and Sustainable development in India include:

The Himalayan Rocket Stove Project

Saving 1 Million Trees!
‘Himalayan Rocket Stove Project’ ………. As a social enterprise geared towards saving Himalayan trees through the use of ultra efficient wood stoves, it has the ambitious target of saving 1 million trees over the next 10 years. The Himalayan Rocket Stove addresses three of the key issues facing people and the environment of the Himalayas, those being deforestation, women’s health, and air pollution. Rocket stoves also burn incredibly cleanly, emitting very little in the way of noxious fumes. Using 4 to 5 times less fuel than a traditional stove and being virtually non-polluting with the wood they do burn, the Himalayan Rocket Stove is a breath of fresh air to the often choked up valleys of the Himalayas during winter. “In terms of CO2, we are looking at saving over 3.5 tons per stove, per year, from being released to the atmosphere.” Russell emphasised “This prevents the clean mountain air from being polluted, fostering health and respiratory benefits.” https://yaktrak.com/himalayan-rocket-stove-project/
