Do you know that tourism is one of the worldwide industries responsible for the rapid increase of carbon dioxide emissions? Mostly, it’s from the fast-growing property development that takes up land through deforestation and of course, human activities resulting in a large amount of carbon dioxide emissions. The condition is worsened by the inevitable occurrence of climate change.
This matter was elevated in the third Summit held by Asia-Pacific Rainforest in 2018 that adopted a specific theme related to “Protecting forests and people, supporting economic growth”. It was mentioned one alternative that is believed to offer a win-win solution to enable the tourism actors but still remain profitable and at the same time promote nature conservation and allow for community development for the future generations. That is ecotourism. The challenge now and ahead of time is to apply this new take on tourism by supporting the efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries (REDD+ framework). It is going to be implemented into all scales of business with no exception to property development in the real estate industry.
Bali is one of the most beautiful islands in the world which becomes a melting pot for various peoples and cultures around the world. It comfortably nestles in the mid of Indonesia archipelago with its economic sector relying so much on the tourism industry. The island is so popular with the rich cultural and religious aspect as well as the beauty of nature you can easily find here and there in the regions of Bali. It is almost ashamed and funny that if you have to question foreigners for a survey, they hardly notice Indonesia but not Bali. They are more familiar with the little Island of God than the country itself.
The accelerated and relentless development in Bali comes with a risk, for sure. It speeds up the damage to natural resources. This is why sustainable property development is vocalized at an all-time high now, emphasizing the importance of mitigating the negative impacts coming from the tourism industry. This is in line with the increase following the opening of Bali tourism since October 14. We see a drastic change for the national flights to Bali in October. Compared to the total 234.000 passengers in September, the figure increased to above 460.000 passengers in October. We believe, the number will keep on growing further in the near future especially when the trace of covid-19 is no longer in existence.
The good news coming from a publication made by a travel magazine based in New York, Travel and Leisure has put Ubud, Bali as number 4th of the 25 best cities all around the world to visit in 2022. The list was curated from surveys conducted to the loyal audiences of the website that have made their way to travel every corner of the globe from the period of January 11 to May 10, 2021. Their evaluation was given by considering their overview of the culture, architecture, natural scenery, hospitality of the local people, and many others. Ubud’s popularity has even dominated Kyoto (Japan) in the 5th position, Bangkok (Thailand), and Seoul in 23rd place (South Korea). We have a backed-up science that looks at the fact on the field that proves why tourists are so invested in the idea of holidaying in Bali.
An integrated study from the Division of Climate Technology Cooperation, Green Technology Center, Seoul alongside Seoul National University and Seoul National University revealed that the major clusters of the target market for tourism industries in Bali are “nature-seeking responsible tourists” and “wellness-seeking responsible tourists” indicating that they have high motivation and attraction to the characteristics of tourist destinations that put forward sustainability campaign at the very first place.
It explains the reason why most of the tourists (local and international visitors) who have been to the island are those who seek retreat, a getaway from the tiring fast pace life. They somehow feel belong and the feeling continues until they decided to settle for a good long term on the island. And it also becomes a solid factor to why Bali should give their utmost attempts to succeed in the incorporation of eco property development and the implementation of REDD+.
An increase in population is an apparent, inevitable issue faced in every corner of the globe. The issue pervades the growing demands for housings, other primary needs, and our desire for entertainment. Understanding this concern, eco property development becomes one of the real best solutions that we, as smart luxury developers can elevate corresponding to the negative impact of the swelling population.
To what extend does eco property development can contribute to the real estate industry? We believe if every smart developer works together to set the mindset that chasing profit is at the end of the day will mean nothing when there’s no more land to develop, this plan will be very much welcomed in great anticipation.
What we are doing today is not just earning to feed our loved ones but bringing positive impact and also improve the lives of our homebuyers without risking the environmental aspect that matters for the next generations to progress. Together with Catur Perkasa Land, you are hand in hand to mature the concept of eco property development on a real-estate industry in Bali where we build a sustainable home living that takes care of Bali’s gorgeous nature through devising energy-saving infrastructure that also supports wastewater management.
Ring us a bell and say hi at +62 811-3839-358, we’re extremely happy and honored to listen to what your creative mind can chip in to help the advancement of eco property development in Bali.
