The Barbados-based Caribbean Tourism Organization has launched new risk management course to help improve the tourism industry’s response to natural and other hazards.
The launch of the program, which coincides with the beginning of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, aims to improve the “skills and competencies of regional tourism industry stakeholders.”
The three-month certificate course, which runs through the end of August, was designed to help “reduce vulnerability and increase the resilience of the tourism sector in CTO member countries through an integrated approach to risk management.”
It’s one of two online training courses offered by the CTO; the other is a focus on sustainable tourism policy, which is slated to begin in September.
