Местоположение: 

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

World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) organize this side-event on the occasion of 2017 as International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, and to underline that sustainable tourism is an important element of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as it relates to sustainable economic growth and decent employment.
