Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

: There is a need to ensure TFS has the staff and budget to continue the tourism development required to develop a sustainable financial revenue stream to support long-term protection and management of FNR and the benefit sharing to local communities that provide incentives to reduce existing threats to FNR. There is also a need for TFS to develop a resilient tourism development strategy that is diverse, including domestic, regional and global tourist markets and a wide variety of activities for all ages, interests and income levels.

2

 The excellent financial management capabilities of TFS and the opportunities for investment and revenue generation from NFRs suggest there is a strong foundation for financial sustainability. What would be useful to provide assurance of financial sustainability is a predicitve financial analysis of potential revenue generation by NFRs and the financial cost of managing NFRs
