Transforming tourism value chains in developing countries and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) to accelerate more resource efficient, low carbon development

As of: July 2018

Objective and activities

The project supports the countries in reducing GHG emissions and improving resource efficiency in key tourism sector value chains with high resource use i.e. accommodation, food & beverage, and meetings, incentives, conferences and events (MICE). Transforming the sector to low carbon, resource efficient operations, requires an increase in sustainable consumption and production (SCP) practices by businesses and tourists through more coherent actions in countries. The project will 1) establish and analyse the sector’s inventory of GHG emissions and sustainable products and services in the tourism value chains; 2) establish an integrated emissions reduction and resource efficiency action framework based on life cycle approaches, with specific indicators for mitigation / adaptation priorities; 3) build local institutional and networking capacities; 4) support national implementation and results reporting; and 5) enhance regional tourism networking, lessons and learning.
