KECOBAT Network can be regarded as a trade association representing the poorest sections of the tourism sector. By being the central point of contact, KECOBAT Network, links these, often-inaccessible, communities with the government, the private sector, NGOs, donors, and training institutions thereby making it easier and less time-consuming to work with. KECOBAT Network aims to create a forum that affords communities grappling with tourism challenges to work with one voice and purpose through empowering communities to mobilize their own capacities, learn from each other, effectively manage their resources, and thereby make informed decisions to control activities that affect their lives and their environment. This will make them actors rather than passive subjects in the tourism industry.
