Kabupaten Kayong Utara
Kayong Utara region is home to some of the wildest and most unspoiled ecosystems on the planet. With roughly half of the total area of the regency appointed as conservation area, it is a challenge for the local government as policy makers in managing the whole region. Local government seeks to maximize the benefits for the people living in and around the park while still conserving the natural ecosystem. A sustainable ecotourism program is being developed as a way to promote the region and provide additional income for villages.
Ecotourism development in Kayong Utara is fully supported by the local government and the private sectors in the provision of tourist services. The long term strategy for developing ecotourism in this region lies in sustained community development, identifying the regions potential and enhancing infrastructure. Eco tour design with its promotional strategy are the steps for both the local government and its partner in developing ecotourism in this region in the long-term.
