Lore Lindu National Park prepares its ecotourism masterplan

FGD masterplan ekowisata Lore Lindu

The Lore Lindu National Park organized a focus group discussion with its project partners (UNDP project, Forest Programme, GIZ) on developing an ecotourism masterplan on 9 January in Palu, Central Sulawesi. The discussion aimed to collect input related to working on a planning document for ecotourism development at the Lore Lindu National Park.

During the discussion, the participants agreed to extend the scope of the masterplan to the Lore Lindu Biosphere Reserve, since the national park is the core zone of the biosphere. Additionally, the developed masterplan is to be linked to other tourist destinations in Central Sulawesi.  Therefore, they suggested to incorporate the discussed document with the province’s tourism development master plan (Rencana Induk Pengembangan Pariwisata Daerah- RIPPDA).

Finally, the participants agreed to form a small team consisting of the Provincial Forestry Service and several partner institutions to have a dialogue with the East Kalimantan Provincial Secretary regarding the budget increase for the forestry sector and the development of KPH institutions.
