Indonesia's environment is in danger, especially in the famous touristic island of Bali. Indonesia is facing huge economic, environmental and social challenges whereby the economy and population are developing faster than public services. In addition, Indonesia is already facing symptoms of the global climate change (e.g. sea level rise provoking coast and beach erosion, salt water intrusions, warmer sea temperatures causing coral mortality).
Bali's economy is almost entirely dependent on the tourism industry, which itself relies mostly on Bali's natural assets (e.g. beaches, landscapes, rice fields, coral reefs). Thus, moving forward on environment issues is vital for the long term of Balis tourism industry. Bali Villa Finder has therefore decided to dig into the existing issues. We came up with a white paper on the current situation, as well as the lists of recommended solutions and providers for our villa owners. We named this project: GECO.
Our initiative is guided by the 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle). The first goal is to work toward making the omnipresent trash a thing of the past.
