  • Guides to cash in on ‘avi-tourism’

    first_img6 June 2008A group of 17 students who recently graduated from the BirdLife South Africa avi-career entrepreneurial programme are set to give the local eco-tourism industry a major boost, as they head out to work as bird guides along the country’s numerous birding routes.The group, which is the first to complete the one-year birding course, will be able to take tourists along birding routes, helping them to spot and identify various species of birds along with way.Eco-tourists are flocking to South Africa to see the country’s 900 species of birds.The course was developed in the United States to create jobs and support small business owners in the eco-tourism and community development sectors.“Avi-tourism is becoming the second fastest-growing outdoor activities in the world,” said BirdLife SA guide development manager Priya Vallabh in Nelspruit this week.She said the course taught students how to open their own guide businesses in their communities or gain employment as guides on South Africa’s many birding routes.Theta accredited courseFormerly known as the bird guide development programme, the course is accredited with the Tourism and Hospitality Education and Training Authority (Theta), and is being facilitated by Sasol, BirdLife SA and Junior Achievement South Africa.It offers a basic understanding of what eco-tourism is all about and teaches various business skills such as market research, brand identity, developing and implementing a business plan and managing finances.One of the graduates, David Letsoalo, from Magoebaskloof, said that he found learning about the birds’ characteristics and behaviour the most interesting.“I am passionate about being a bird guide, my dream is to study further and expand my birding expertise to be able to take tours to different parts of the country,” he said.Letsoalo received the Eagle Award from BirdLife SA in 2007, for his exceptional bird guiding skills that were featured in the SABC 2 series Kaelo – Stories of Hope.Even though Letsoalo has seen most of the birds more times than he can remember, he always gets as excited as his audience when he spots a new species for the first time.“Bird guiding is one of the ways local communities in bird-rich areas can earn a sustainable income and help conserve the area’s natural heritage,” said Sasol corporate social investment head Pamilla Mudhray.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

  • Region Charged to Adopt Gender-Sensitive Response to Climate Change

    first_img Canada’s High Commissioner to Jamaica, Her Excellency Laurie Peters, has called on countries of the region to adopt more gender-sensitive measures in reducing vulnerability and building resilience against climate change.She said that this can be done by integrating gender issues into policies, programmes and activities, with specific focus on empowering women and girls.“Canada wants to see a climate smart region… that promotes environment and climate action by advancing women’s leadership and including women and girls in the planning and decision-making process,” she said.Ms. Peters was addressing a workshop dubbed ‘Conversations on Gender. The Role of Gender in Building Climate Resilience in Jamaica’, at the Waterloo Road location of the Canadian High Commission in Kingston on Tuesday (June 26).She noted that it is Canada’s hope that this inclusive approach will support initiatives that will both mitigate and adapt to climate change and also create economic opportunities for women.“Here in Jamaica and in the region, Canada’s goal is to help build a more prosperous and integrated Caribbean community, one that is able to empower women and girls, reduce poverty by enabling sustainable economic growth, and eventually provide opportunity and security to its citizens,” she said.Ms. Peters further noted that the workshop demonstrates Canada’s continued commitment to Jamaica and the region in charting a course towards enhancing the country’s resilience.“The development team here at the Canadian High Commission has embarked on this series of Conversations on Gender to engage civil society, government partners and a broad range of stakeholders to discuss gender issues, advance policies and programmes and share critical and timely information and ideas to ensure that gender equality is at the centre,” she noted.The workshop was the second in a series organised by Global Affairs Canada (GAC). The entity, through its Feminist International Assistance Policy (FIAP), seeks to promote the economic empowerment of women and girls in Jamaica, and through this approach, to make a strong contribution to achieving sustainable development goals.The workshop brought together a wide cross section of representatives from the climate/environment sector, and government ministries, departments and agencies. Also in attendance were private-sector entities, members of academia and professional umbrella organisations.Discussions focused on the topic ‘How will we together ensure that in building climate resilience in Jamaica, gender is effectively addressed?’.The workshop series is expected to contribute to the advancement of women’s equal participation with men as decision-makers in shaping the sustainable development of their societies; reduction in gender inequalities in access to and control over the resources and benefits of development; and increased awareness among decision-makers on gender equality issues. Canada’s High Commissioner to Jamaica, Her Excellency Laurie Peters, has called on countries of the region to adopt more gender-sensitive measures in reducing vulnerability and building resilience against climate change.
