CBTE’s Training, Capacity Building and Economic Empowerment

CBTE’s Training

This helps to assist community members to differentiate and assess their experiences with different markets and to understand how guests arrive in the community; different channels of communication and distribution; and the opportunities and risks associated with them.


Capacity Building and Economic Empowerment

KECOBAT provides training opportunities to communities, local people and the informal sector who are interested in understanding the basics of community tourism and how to fully exploit the employment and business opportunities presented by tourism to their communal area. We also participate in the assessment of training needs and the development of training manuals designed to meet the specific needs of community based tourism.  

KECOBAT conducts training at both local and regional levels to help the local communities develop sustainable community tourism enterprises



The Kenya Community Based Tourism Network (KECOBAT) network was launched in August 2003 as a membership umbrella organization representing the interest of Community Based Tourism (CBT) organizations in Kenya.

It aims to facilitate information sharing; delivering appropriate technical support and advisory services; mediating and lobbying their interests to government and other relevant institutions and thereby integrating community concerns into national tourism.
