Steps are being taken to promulgate regulations related to all adventure tourism activities in Sri Lanka. Ten advisory committees have been appointed for each field of the adventure tourism service to setup international standards. As per the initiative taken by the Central Programme Management Unit (CPMU) of the National Policies and Economic Affairs Ministry with Sri Lanka Tourism, the project is being implemented by the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA).
It will promulgate the regulations related to all adventure tourism activities and limitations to the industry such as carrying capacity limitations, safety requirements, minimum requirement for registration as an adventure tourism operator, etc.
Ten consultative committees have been appointed under the SLTDA for each adventure tourism segment, which is divided into 10 fields such as land, water and air-related activities, to develop these guidelines. With the inputs and advice from the experts in these consultative committees, the SLTDA is scheduled to develop and gazette the guidelines on adventure tourism by March 2018.
