QUELQUES ASTUCES POUR PROMOUVOIR LE TOURISME ECOLOGIQUE EN PROVINCE DU KIVU

Dans mon pays, la République Démocratique du Congo, le 27 octobre de chaque année est dédiée au Tourisme.
Nous estimons que le Tourisme joue un rôle très prépondérant dans le vécu quotidien des communautés, notamment dans les pays qui ont compris sa nécessité. C'est alors que certains pays qui ont compris son importance se sont déterminés jusqu'à relever leur économie à travers l'Industrie Touristique.
Toutefois, l'activité touristique est souvent lié à une meilleure gestion de l'Environnement et de la biodiversité. Elle implique à cet effet un environnement sain, lequel est dépourvu de la pollution , des destructions et des nuisances.
Cependant, le tourisme est aussi lié à la culture, le cas échéant, il entraîne des conséquences très néfastes pour les pays hôtes.
II. COMMENT PROMOUVOIR LE TOURISME A L'EST DE LA RDC ?

Promouvoir le Tourisme c'est d'abord Promouvoir la Paix y compris le bien-être des communautés locales.
C'est aussi respecter un certain nombre des préalables que nous pouvons décortiquer ensemble, notamment :
- Identifier les sites d'attractions
- Mener des travaux d'entretien et d'aménagement e ces sites,
- Interdire toute circulation désordonnées dans les sites déjà aménagés
-Créer d'autres sites et parcs d'attractions
-Gérer ces sites d'une manière rationnelle.
B.
- Mise en place des structures d'accueil
- Entretenir des infrastructures permettant le déplacement inter-site
- Garantir la sécurité des touristes et des communautés locales,
- Fixer et ou mettre en place des stratégies permettant aux touristes de réaliser des visites,
- Réaliser des publicités en vue de faire connaître l'attraction de sites aménagés

III. QUELQUES CONSEQUENCES QUE PEUVENT ENTRAINER UN TOURISME NON CULTUREL.

Un tourisme non culturel peut entraîner certains désavantages s'il n'est pas bien canalysé.
Il s'agit des désavantages suivants :
- Alimenter le trafic illicite du patrimoine culturel et historique
par exemple : Les objets d'art et culture achetés à vil prix ou encore sortis illégalement
-Pillage de certains biens (cimetières des certains chefs où certains objets de valeur ont té entreposés)
- Empêcher à un grand public l'accès, la jouissance des oeuvres
-qui sont l'héritage d'un peuple, notamment les rochers contenant des inscriptions importantes
et qui constituent la richesse collective , exemple : des bibliothèques, etc

NB Nous estimons qu'une fois ces astuces respectées, nous pouvons investir dans le secteur touristique en nous procurant le bien-être moral, psychologique, sanitaire , écologique etc.....
Toutefois, la partie orientale de la RDC disposent d'énormes sites d'attractions tels que ses montagnes, ses lacs et rivières, ses savanes herbeuses ou arborées, ses ilôts, ses faunes sauvages et aquatiques ..tels que les gorilles de Montagnes et d'autres espèces rares et endémiques pour la RDC
Tous ces élements font la beauté de Notre pays, lesquels grâce à l'hospitalité des congolais Tout le monde peut venir visiter.

Some tricks to Promote Ecological Tourism in the Province of Kivu

In my country, Democratic Republic of Congo, every 27th of October is dedicated to tourism. We estimate that tourism plays a very important role in the daily lives of our communities, especially in countries who have understood its importance and have created a Tourist Industry to support their economy. The tourist industry is often related to good management of the environment and its biodiversity. For that purpose, it implies a clean environment. Moreover, tourism is also related to culture, and if neglected could lead to harmful consequences for the host countries.

II. HOW TO PROMOTE TOURISM IN THE EAST OF THE DRC?

Promoting tourism is also promoting peace, including the well being of local communities
We should also respect certain prerequisites that we can analyze together, in particular:
-Identifying attraction sites
- Conducting maintenance and development work at those sites
-Prohibiting all sort of disorderly traffic in the sites that have already been built.
-Creating other sites and amusement parks.
-Putting in place tourist bureaux.
-Supporting infrastructures that permit transportation to these sites.
-Guaranteeing the security of tourists and local communities.
-Regulating and setting up strategies to make sure tourists can visit the sites.
- Advertising the sites.

III. SOME OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF NON-CULTURAL TOURISM

This type of tourism can bring along the following disadvantages :
-Pillaging of certain goods (ie cemetery of certain leaders or valuable objects)
-Preventing a wider audience to access and enjoy these artifacts that are an important part of our cultural tradition such as the rocks we have with inscriptions constituting our collective wealth.

For example, we believe that once these points are respected, we can invest in the tourist sector which will bring us moral, psychological, sanitary, and ecological well-being.
The western part of the DRC has great sites such as mountains, lakes, and rivers, savannas, small islands, wild and aquatic faunas ... as well as mountain gorillas and other rare species that are only found in the DRC.

All these elements constitute the beauty of our country, which everybody can come and visit thanks to the hospitality or the Congolese people.
