Nayong Pilipino starts local tourism study
With the country’s tourism industry still reeling from the ill effects of the coronavirus disease pandemic, the Nayong Pilipino Foundation (NPF) has launched a project to seek input straight from the public to help the Department of Tourism (DOT) create research-based projects and policies to enrich its current domestic tourism program.
Launched last Tuesday by the NPF Research Institute, “Project Pagsibol” solicits case studies on the following: Philippine natural and cultural heritage, cultural and creatives industries, sustainable cultural heritage tourism, and ecotourism, and tourism governance.
In a statement, the NPF called on individuals and private and public organizations to submit case study proposals for their past or ongoing projects related to the four topics. Applicants whose proposals are accepted will write 8,000 to 10,000-word case studies that would be peer-reviewed.
The final output will be sent to the DOT, the relevant local government unit and related government agencies, such as National Commission for Culture and the Arts, National Historical Commission and National Museum.
