The overall objective of this USFS technical assistance mission is to improve the tourism experience in the Pays Dogon in an effort to both ensure sustainability of tourism in this area, as well as bring more dollars into the villages of the region. The products and recommendations will create a more authentic experience for the visitor, increase village revenue and preserve the culture and environment of the region. A team of three USFS technical experts worked closely with GSTA and Solimar personnel incountry for three weeks. The team met with elders and community members of a number of Pays Dogon villages to gather cultural, historical, and site specific information on the villages and people of the area. Information and experiences gleaned will be transformed into an interpretive sign for each village visited and a Journal that holds each village’s story and information pertinent to travelers to Dogon Country.
