VCBET-Network is the first and foremost network in the field of community-based eco-tourism in Vietnam. Founded in 2012 by CVTD, VCBET-Network aims to connect NGOs, businesses, community, and local and national parks to engage in the field of eco-tourism and conservation, and also to support and provide a unique travel experience in Vietnam.
VCBET-Network is committed to helping organizations and communities promoting and practising the principles of community-based eco-tourism. We do this through the member’s program including:
Networking and communication
Create favourable conditions for communication and networking among members- i.e. tourism organisations, government and other stakeholders through the media, seminars, publications, reports and press.
Create strong active relationships between VCBET-Network and members. We raise funds to promote members and partners for the benefit of the community and ecosystem in Vietnam as a whole. Please contact us if you would like to support.
Promote the cooperation of VCBET-Network, its members and others community-based eco-tourism related businesses and organizations.
Capacity-building consultation, development and training of reservation
Enhance the capacity of members, and local natural reserves, by improving access to information, advice and support based on studies of VCBET-Network, the successful models in Vietnam and over the world.
Build a standard system of certification for community-based eco-tourism and conservation.
Research and publicly share the results about community-based eco-tourism, conservation and climate change studies.
Organise and coordinate non-profit international programs for support in conservation areas (focusing on education, health, environment, agriculture, forestry, etc.)
The Development Fund supports sustainable development of community-based eco-tourism and local communities in the conservation areas.
We are always looking to connect with potential partners to supplement our eco-tours network in Vietnam and further afield.
