Employing a Human-Centered Design approach, Emerging360 in collaboration with Solimar International supported the Cambodian Ministry of Environment within the “Cambodia Sustainable Landscape & Ecotourism Project (CSLEP)” to formulate a five-year Regional Ecotourism Development Plan for the Cardamom Mountains (2022 – 2027). As part of the year-long assignment, Emerging360 developed three destination visions and investment plans for priority ecotourism destinations to stimulate private sector investment, and to define US$33 million in public sector infrastructure development investment recommendations, which will be implemented through World Bank financing.

Over the past six months, Emerging360 has been collaborating with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). We’ve been formulating a series of Guidelines on Hygiene and Safety for Workers and Communities in the Tourism Industry in Southeast Asia and ASEAN Member States: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
As vaccination programs are rolled out around the world, tourism destinations are preparing for an increase in arrivals again. The travel industry must promote the health and safety of workers, hosting communities, and travelers alike to ensure inclusive recovery of the tourism sector in Southeast Asia. Emerging360’s work to define common standards will help rebuild the trust of the tourism workforce, travelers, and local communities, including marginalized workers.
Emerging360 is partnering with the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) on a series of digital learning solutions to improve learning and knowledge sharing. The collaboration will strengthen NRC’s humanitarian work in 30 countries, as well as the work of a number of other global aid organizations. The projects are funded by a generous grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to improve humanitarian access in hard to reach areas.

The “Road to Growth” program is a collaborative venture developed by the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, with support from the ExxonMobil Foundation, designed to build the business skills and financial literacy of women entrepreneurs. Emerging360 designed and developed the Road to Growth platform, piloting it in Nigeria in 2016 with great results. This year, in collaboration with local partner BEDU, we refined and replicated the platform for the roll out of Road to Growth in Mexico.
