  • About Us

    ESP an organization working in the field of tourism has basic aim of of helping the "Poor" living in northern areas of Pakistan and to promote tourism in Pakistan. ESP can be considered as an association for the purpose of advancing knowledge and disseminating information about mountain research and mountain development throughout the world. The ESP tries to promote sustainable mountain development through improved communication among institutions and individuals, with a particular focus on mountain eco-regions with Pakistan and abroad. In pursuing this purpose, it collaborates with like-minded institutions. The core duty of ESP can be considered as that ESP is a group working for the "advocacy" for poor people living in remote mountain areas through international networking. The ESP links people concerned with mountain development and research and is also running On-line Information Sharing Capacity Data Bank . It provides guidelines and information on mountain initiatives and alerts the communities to timely actions, as well as the value of sharing information about mountain environments. It thus plays a direct role in fulfilling the objectives of Chapter 13 of Agenda 21.

    Sustainability Practices

    Regular campaigns involving youth, teachers, media manager, visiting areas and meeting communities. If local people are involved and if they get financial benefits from tourism being generated in their areas, they look after their environments in a better way. We try to provide direct financial benefits of tourism to local communities. Encourage communities to increase their capacity to provide basic demands of tourism sector like food, better porters, drivers, cooks etc. If cost is less, vegetables and hens are good, why tour operator shall buy from cities? Of course he shall buy from community where is tour is staying. We were involved in such activities in Swat and Naran in year 1999 to 2003 and involve ministry of tourism that stared buying commodities from communities for their 34 motels in the tourism regions.
