Measuring sustainable tourism

IDEEA Group will be presenting at the 6th UNWTO International Conference on Tourism Statistics in Manila during June. Under the broad conference theme of Measuring Sustainable Tourism,  our focus will be on SEEA aligned frameworks for integrating destination based measures of tourism’s impact across economic, social and environmental dimensions.

The Manila Conference aims to secure a Ministerial level resolution for UN members to adopt more sustainable, destination based development policies, as a key outcome for 2017 as The Year of Sustainable Tourism Development.
