Resilience and Opportunity after Covid-19 in Nepal’s Tourism Sector

Join The Fulbright Program Student Researcher William ‘Jack’ Shangraw at the American Center on September 19 as he shares his research focusing on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on Nepal’s tourism sector at the community level.

Jack’s research focuses on how guesthouse and homestay operators in Nepal perceive the impact of the pandemic on tourism in their communities, and the resilience and sustainability of different tourism management structures. The challenges of Covid and the benefits of tourism have not been distributed equally among those who rely on the tourism economy, and the new post-Covid landscape provides opportunities for re-thinking how tourism can support local communities across popular and emerging destinations in Nepal.Registration is mandatory!
