Re-connecting tourism: promoting evidence-based policies for sustainable development

Published on

The MED Sustainable Tourism Community is organising the international conference “Re-connecting tourism: promoting evidence-based policies for sustainable development” on the 29th-30th May 2018 at the UNINT University in Rome.

After more than one year and a half since its beginning, The MED Sustainable Tourism Community has gathered the first results from their pilot actions, tests and studies. The BlueTourMed project, who is coordinating the joint actions of the Community, has therefore decided to organize a Conference in Rome on the 29th-30th May 2018.

The focus of this conference is on promoting evidence-based policies and management strategies because the 18 transregional projects of the Community are actively monitoring tourism pressures, designing and testing innovative management and planning strategies so they can feed the policy-making process with precious knowledge and data.

The conference will try to answer two key questions underlying the whole tourism sector in the Mediterranean and even beyond:

  • What do we need to know to design better policies for sustainable tourism in the Mediterranean coastal area?
  • How can we manage environmental-cultural-social impacts of tourism while keeping this industry growing?
