Abstract

Ecotourism, as a sustainable form of tourism, has gained prominence as a means to balance economic development with environmental conservation. This abstract provides a comprehensive overview of the interplay between ecotourism initiatives and community development in remote areas. The study investigates the potential of ecotourism to foster socio-economic growth while preserving the ecological integrity of isolated regions. The research employs a mixed-methods approach, combining qualitative interviews with community members, local authorities, and ecotourism practitioners, along with quantitative surveys to gauge the economic impact of ecotourism activities. The selected remote areas under investigation are characterized by their unique biodiversity, cultural richness, and geographical isolation. The findings reveal that well-managed ecotourism initiatives can serve as catalysts for positive change in remote communities. Economic benefits, such as job creation, income generation, and infrastructural development, contribute to an improved quality of life for local residents. Additionally, ecotourism often acts as a mechanism for cultural preservation, fostering a sense of pride and identity among community members.
