In the context of the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, UNWTO produced an initial draft discussion paper that offers a framework for further debate on tourism´s role towards sustainable development. It underlines where the sector stands today and what priorities for action are needed to progress further.

The draft discussion paper is now open for public consultation. Your collaboration and inputs are essential to establish a more solid knowledge base. You are invited to comment on the issues raised by the discussion paper and to share your success stories that can be used as case studies.

Enriched by your input, the discussion paper will be transformed into a final publication on ‘Sustainable Tourism for Development’ for the International Year, to be published later in 2017.
