The Integrated Tourism Master Plan for the Komodo National Park/Labuan Bajo (KNP-LB) on Flores Island is a 25-year phased overall development plan for the entire Tourism Destination Area (TDA) and a five-year detailed development strategy for prioritised Key Tourism Areas. It consists of an investment and financing plan for infrastructure and services and an institutional development programme and a capacity-building programme.
The project aims to improve the quality of, and access to, tourism-relevant basic infrastructure and services, and strengthen the local economy. In this regard, two Key Tourism Areas(KTAs) have been identified: the Komodo National Park (KNP) and the town of Labuan Bajo.
IPE Global is lending its support in policy analysis, identification of holistic opportunities, mapping and delineation of development zones, environmental and social safeguard plans, etc. We are focused on exploring solutions that are compatible with the infrastructure & service provision of the preferred development scenario and with the livelihoods of the local communities with recommendations and institutional arrangements aligned to conserve the natural biodiversity.
