The government's focus on the development of ecotourism, especially in rural areas, is a reliable means of creating a stable source of income for locals and preventing heterogeneous construction.
Based on the directives of the budget law regarding the creation of sustainable employment and support for development in rural and nomadic areas, low-interest loans (up to 6%) are being offered by the National Development Fund of Iran to those eager to establish ecolodges throughout the country, IRNA reported.
Ecotourism is defined by the International Ecotourism Society as responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the welfare of local people.
It is intended as a low-impact and often small-scale alternative to standard commercial mass tourism and its purpose is to preserve natural areas and environment and improve the well-being of the local people.
