Handbook: Youth PATH - an educational tool for sustainable development

This publication by the UNESCO Office in Kingston is a handbook on the Youth PATH (Youth Poverty Alleviation through Tourism and Heritage) project in which the development of natural and cultural heritage tourism industries was used as a poverty eradication tool involving young people from 14 Caribbean countries.


In his foreword, the Director of the UNESCO Kingston Cluster Office for the Caribbean, Kwame Boafo, explains the structure and purpose of the publication: “The handbook features lessons learned on planning, implementing, sustaining, monitoring and evaluating similar projects, as well as useful recommendations for engaging stakeholders, building partnerships and potential funding sources. It was prepared with the help of young people from 14 Caribbean countries who were involved in the project. It is designed for use by project planners in Ministries of Tourism, Youth Development, Culture and for Non-Governmental and Community Based Organizations to design projects in collaboration with and for young people to engage them in the conservation, development and management of natural and cultural heritage tourism sites.”
