Infopoint Lunchtime Conference: Private Sector & Sustainable Tourism

Infopoint Lunchtime Conference: Private Sector & Sustainable Tourism

Tourism plays an increasingly important role in sustainable development, which has been confirmed by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly by approving the adoption of 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.

This brings new opportunities to raise awareness, design and deliver tourism projects and actions that aim to create long term benefits. Within this context the Project Management for Sustainable Development (PM4SD) is considered a particularly effective technique to create successful partnerships between the public and the private sector.

Case Studies from South Africa and Jordan will be presented.
