EplerWood International plans future sustainable tourism project in Bangladesh

EplerWood International was launched in January 2003, by Megan Epler Wood, founder and past president of The International Ecotourism Society, to advise private business, government, international development projects, non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions on the development of sustainable tourism and ecotourism in developing countries.

EplerWood International provides market-based approaches to sustainable tourism development in response to a rising global demand for sustainable tourism projects that would meet economic development needs.
EplerWood International’s sustainable tourism development projects have spanned the globe. Every country’s geographic, social, environmental, and political considerations are carefully analyzed before recommendations are made. The world is full of unique contexts for tourism development, and our team creatively designs tourism in harmony with local resources and human needs.

In 2009 EplerWood International was in Bangladesh. Follow Megan Epler Wood’s journey in Bangladesh and her goal to develop an ecotourism strategy on the Bay of Bengal.
