UNEP’s proposals on sustainable tourism
Background: A variety of groups and organizations have undertaken work on tourism, on its environmental effects and to a lesser extent on the implications of tourism for sustainable development. Some of these groups have presented guidance for sustainable tourism based on their work. The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) has surveyed those main proposed Principles for Implementation of Sustainable Tourism. These proposed principles were presented at the UNEP High Level Committee of Ministers and Officials in November 1998.
The UNEP Governing Council, meeting in February 1999, approved a consultation process with major groups to finalize an agreed set of principles. By promoting agreement of a consolidated set of principles, UNEP is seeking to encourage a movement from debate to more widespread action and adoption of sustainable tourism practices.
