This Guide provides development practitioners with the information and tools necessary to successfully facilitate the financing of small-scale, sustainable tourism projects, and to transfer these skills to their clients and counterparts. it is designed to assist organizations and individuals working with micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises to conduct pre-feasibility studies, understand the market and financial analysis process, prepare investment briefs, identify potential sources of financing, understand how deals and joint ventures are structured, and work with governments to remove barriers to investment and provide broader access to credit. It also includes lessons learned from past experiences and successful efforts to facilitate sustainable investment and financing. This manual is from a set of nine courses on Sustainable Tourism that have been developed by George Washington University as a result of compiling the lessons and best practices from the USAID Global Sustainable Tourism Alliance (GSTA) program, and other tourism development experiences. The courses train students, practitioners, donor agency representatives, and others working in related fields to understand and develop tourism and its role in international development. All the course materials are public access and also can be found inside the USAID NRM&D Learning Management Center. Your registration in these courses will allow you to actively participate in discussions of the material, and to take quizzes to check yourself for understanding at the end of each course. Each of the nine courses are offered free on a non-academic credit basis and offer a Certificate of Completion from USAID. Participants may take these courses to build your own knowledge of the field of tourism and development. The target audience for this manual, Tourism Investment And Finance - Accessing Sustainable Funding And Social Impact Capital , includes professionals working on tourism-related projects in developing countries, including staff from donor and government agencies, non-governmental organizations, consulting firms, universities, businesses, and other entities.
