Sustainability & long term development
OACM global tourism industry’s future sustainability and long term development approach for the preservation of oceans and natural resources will be determined by the efficiency of collaboration between the government, corporate, and world organization sectors.
A cohesive integration of environmental and financial aspects is necessary while also requiring the informed participation of all relevant stakeholders, as well as strong political leadership to ensure wide participation and consensus building. To achieve sustainable tourism, we need to have a continuous process and it requires constant monitoring of the impact of the implemented SOS CP system, introducing preventive and/or corrective measures if and when necessary. We need to optimise the
use of environmental resources that constitute a key element in the tourism development, maintaining essential ecological processes and helping conserve natural heritage and biodiversity.
OACM promotes the socio-cultural authenticity of host communities, conserving their cultural heritage and traditional values, and contributing to intercultural understanding and tolerance. OACM also works to ensure viable, long-term economic operations, providing socio-economic benefits to all stakeholders that are fairly distributed, including stable employment, income-earning opportunities, and social services to host communities, as well as contributing to poverty alleviation - which is a part of the OACM blue economy concept.
