Sustainability and Competitiveness in Tourist Destinations

Destinations have the responsibility to promote formulas that enable sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth; and that, at the same time, contribute to full and productive employment and decent work for all (Goal 8). Particular emphasis is now placed on the access to decent work opportunities in the tourism sector, especially for young people and women, who can benefit from tourism through improved training and professional development. This also involves taking the necessary measures to maximize the economic benefits of tourism for the host community and to create strong links with the local economy of destination and other economic activities in the environment.

 

Sustainability and Competitiveness in Tourist Destinations

Sustainable Tourism within the framework of the New Urban Agenda

Within the framework of the New Urban Agenda Sustainable Development of urban destinations should be sought, understood as an integrative process that includes public authorities of the destination, citizenship, their companies and services, and the mechanisms for promoting destination and communication with tourists. Moving towards the development of sustainable urban destinations is a process of shared responsibility. Actors in sustainable tourism cities share the responsibility of maintaining the destination as a vibrant and prosperous place to live and visit. It is therefore essential to ensure that tourism destination governance includes all stakeholders, especially at local level, and that the roles and responsibilities of each are clearly defined.
