Tourism and the Sustainable Development Goals - Journey to 2030 publication is now available online. 

The report is developed in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and aims to build knowledge, empower and inspire tourism stakeholders to take necessary actions to accelerate the shift towards a more sustainable tourism sector by aligning policies, business operations and investments with the SDGs. 

The research is based on an analysis of 64 countries' Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) on the SDGs- submitted to the United Nations High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in 2016 and 2017, eight Mainstreaming, Acceleration and Politcy Support (MAPS) country roadmaps and corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities of 60 global tourism companies. 

We hope this report will provide sound and meaningful guidance to all players in the tourism sector to make the case for tourism as a key driver to our ambitious journey to 2030.
