From the SDGs towards a Sustainable Tourism in the BSR

The CBSS long term priorities have been reviewed in 2014. They explicitly support a sustainable tourism development by means of strengthened tourism cooperation in the BSR and joint tourism development. The Global Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals were adopted in 2015. The CBSS have renewed their commitment to a more sustainable development of the BSR in 2016. What has happened since? How has tourism fared in terms of a more sustainable development? The project ‘From SDGs towards sustainable Tourism in the BSR’ will track down the status quo of sustainable tourism in the BSR, identify best practices, trigger processes, gaps and differences in order to develop, provide and communicate solutions. The project is supposed to be only a first formal step towards a more systematic approach to promoting sustainability in the tourism sector: a flagship process in the frame of EUSBSR’s PA Tourism, which aims at really achieving impact.
