Benita RoseUganda
From a young age, I’ve been passionate about travel & tourism in the Caribbean and Latin America, especially exploring the beautiful natural resources the region has to offer, such as rivers, waterfalls, beaches, mountains... I have an academic background in international development & cooperation, as well as 4+ years of experience working in a leading role of a Dominican DMC. I have been involved in several international projects related to tourism, climate change and poverty reduction throughout my career, and I hope to continue to be involved in creating a climate friendly tourism product in the Dominican Republic. I am also a proud recipient of a PG Diploma in Climate Friendly Travel scholarship through SUNx Malta and its collaboration with ITS Malta. As the Chapter Leader for my country, I hope to create an active community of climate champions so that we can foster and nurture partnership building and networking locally and across the region.
