I am one of a small handful of sustainable tourism experts specialising in the Caucasus region, particularly in Georgia. I have first-hand, in-depth knowledge of the tourism sector and its environmental, economic and social impacts in the region. Please see more here .
I am currently working as the Sustainable Tourism Expert on the World Bank project in Georgia to develop sustainable Destination Management Organisations in the regions, and on the national and regional marketing. I have helped shape and write the national tourism marketing strategy for the Georgian government as well as regional tourism strategies for two regions, and advised GIZ Caucasus on sustainable mountain tourism development.
I have spoken at conferences related to sustainable tourism and written several articles, and completed the GSTC Sustainable Tourism Training Program by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council in July 2017. I am always interested in new opportunities to work in sustainable tourism in emerging destinations, particularly mountain tourism, tourism in Protected Areas, rural and community development.
