Sustainable Tourism Community already counts 17 projects and now welcomes 5 new Modular projects – DestiMED PLUS, INCIRCLE, LABELSCAPE, SuSTowns, WINTER MED - and 2 Strategic Projects – BEST MED and SMARTMED - for the new period. The new projects capitalize on past and ongoing project activities, take advantage of the lessons learned at the local and regional level as well as introduce new capacity building tools and roadmaps to address tourism pressures, enhance attractiveness, diversify tourism offer and strengthen planning and management practices towards sustainability in Mediterranean areas. Collaboration frameworks, methodologies, governance and monitoring tools, tourism plans and models as well as multimodular platforms are among the new tools introduced to the Community.

The new projects have come to enlarge and enhance the Sustainable Tourism Community not only with their outputs but also with new pilot areas. Together with past and ongoing projects, they strengthen the representation of Mediterranean coastal areas inside the Community and facilitate the transferring process of the projects’ results to the entire Med area.
