Responsible Borneo (REBORN) is about rebuilding tourism through the lens of responsibility for sustainable development in Sarawak and other emerging destinations. It is a response to the declaration of 2021 Sarawak Commitment to Responsible Tourism made on 28 May.
Responsible Tourism Blueprint
The significance of this research goes beyond enriching the responsible tourism literature as it also aims to provide a Responsible Tourism Blueprint (practical guideline) and operational framework with indicators and measures, as well as a Responsible Tourism Manual for the Ministry of Tourism, Creative Industry and Performing Arts Sarawak (MTCP) and the relevant tourism and hospitality stakeholders in the state. Ultimately, the goal is to position Sarawak as a responsible tourism destination that benefits local residents/ visitors and businesses, empowers them to work under the responsible tourism framework as well as impresses and attracts foreign visitors in the long run. UTS will lead this project with the support from SRS and other relevant agencies.
