UNWTO & WTM Ministers' Summit

Overtourism: growth is not the enemy, it is how we manage it"

Tuesday, 7 November 2017, ExCeL London  (11:00 - 13:00)

The 2017 edition of the UNWTO & WTM Ministers’ Summit will focus on the following issues:

  1. With international tourists reaching 1.2 billion in 2016, and expected to rise to 1.8 billion by 2030, how can we ensure the sustainable development and management of tourism making growth and sustainability go hand in hand?
  2. What public policies and strategies can be designed to address challenges of congestion management and pressure on natural and cultural resources from tourism?
  3. How to foster the dialogue between the tourism and local communities to strengthen effective engagement and coordination?
  4. How to address the public perception of tourism as a “bad” sector?
  5. What is the role of the private sector and how to build public/private sector partnerships to promote tourism as an effective tool to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Ministerial Roundtable. Committing to Measuring Sustainable Tourism (MST)

Location

Marriott Grand Ballroom Manila
Philippines
Approve event: 
No
21 June 2017
Location: 

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, 2017 constitute a unique opportunity to advance sustainable, inclusive and responsible tourism. The SDGs and national agendas worldwide require a shift towards more integrated policy across economic, social and environmental domains. This, in turn, must be underpinned by more integrated data. Developing a statistical framework to measure sustainable tourism is thus essential in fostering a common understanding for tracking progress and directing policy efforts. Ministers from around the globe will discuss the opportunities and challenges that sustainable tourism brings to their countries, and how the use of more integrated data is supporting them in paving the way towards a more sustainable future.

Moderator: Ms. Anita Mendiratta, Strategic Advisor to CNN International for T.A.S.K Group
