Asian Ecotourism Network welcomes you!

The Asian Ecotourism Network (AEN) is the first developed regional initiative of the Global Ecotourism Network. AEN reflects ecotourism commitment through the enthusiastic participation of its diverse 21 member countries working towards achieving the three ecotourism components namely benefit to communities, benefit to environment, and interpretations at grassroots level, primarily through the Asian ecotourism standards. The ecotourism standards developed by AEN are unique to Asia as compared to global standards. These standards address the ecotourism business needs of the Asia-pacific region. Wherein, the key stakeholders operating their ecotourism businesses get stimulated towards achieving measurable yet sustainable eotourism practices.
