Scoping Study

This scoping study was prepared at the request of the member countries of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program. The study seeks to assess the potential of CAREC as a platform to promote a regional approach to tourism development through the identification of opportunities for enhancing and expanding cooperation among member countries in the tourism sector, and to maximize economic opportunities while safeguarding ecosystems.

The CAREC Program is a partnership of 11 countries—Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Mongolia, Pakistan, the People’s Republic of China (the PRC), Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan—supported by development partners, working together to promote development through cooperation, leading to accelerated growth and poverty reduction.
