Résumé
Botswana, like many developing countries, faces increasing pressure on its natural resource endowment, primarily wildlife and its habitat. Wildlife resources are an economic benefit to Botswana and especially to the Okavango Delta region. The economic potential of wildlife tourism as a tool for conservation of the natural resources in one district in northern Botswana, Ngamiland, is the focus of the study. The overall goal of this project is to develop a tourism valuation model to integrate the components of wildlife tourism. The conceptual valuation model provides an analysis framework based on resource economics principles and a baseline for further research. The model is applied to Botswana, and also can be applied to other developing nations with the potential and capacity for further tourism development.
