THEMATIC FACTSHEET #09: The progress of the Sustainable tourism community

Sustainable Tourism Community’s Thematic Factsheet #09, June 2021

Given the early stage of implementation of most projects and the challenges posed by the pandemic crisis during their first year of activities, the projects have made significant progress so far, both in general and individually.

Most of the outputs that have already been produced concern the development of alternative models, tourism itineraries and Action Plans in the pilot areas of the projects. Important progress has been recorded in the development of tools, indicators systems and data management as well as the setting up of governance schemes and capacity building events such as training workshops and working groups. A significant percentage of the outputs produced so far is related to preliminary studies, analyses and supporting surveys.

Finally, the percentage of outputs related to Marketing and Transferring activities of the projects is reasonably smaller, given the early stage of implementation of most projects.
