The business and why responsible tourism is important:

Through her involvement with Better Tourism Africa and as the Director of Levelle Perspectives, Lisa has worked with over 80 different tourism businesses throughout southern Africa to implement management and operational systems that incorporate the principles of responsible tourism. She has also developed a variety of support tools to enable businesses to continue improving in this regard, assists them to network with others to find context-appropriate solutions to responsible tourism implementation challenges, and has conducted nearly 200 audits of tourism businesses against internationally recognised responsible tourism certification standards. Lisa also supports the public sector to develop synergies between economic development and environmental management policies and the business realities of the tourism sector in southern Africa. She currently sits on the Standards and Best Practice working group of the Sustainable Tourism Certification Alliance Africa, and is an Associate Member of the Tourism and Protected Areas working group of the IUCN.
