Supporting local communities

PUG eco-rated lodges are encouraged to place local community consultation and needs at the heart of their planning and operations not only providing work opportunities but also supporting social needs. Examples include resources for education, medical camps and support with nutrition, veterinary care, compensation for livestock loss, sustainable energy, and advice on farming and rainwater harvesting. Ask your lodge or resort how you can help locally.
