Natural disasters have a significant impact on the tourism industry. Smarter planning for natural and man-made disasters as well as increased collaboration across a destination’s tourism industry helps to improve resilience and reduce economic loss.
EarthCheck has been extensively involved in providing tourism risk management services to destinations, regions, organisations and individuals for the past decade, including the preparation of risk management plans, industry toolkits and the delivery disaster preparedness workshops.
Most recently, EarthCheck has developed a disaster preparedness mobile application that meets the needs of small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The App does not replace the need for an active Risk Management or Crisis Plan, rather it operationalises the plan by giving responsibilities to individuals – ensuring a single collective effort can be taken with clear roles, responsibilities and a central system for updates.
