Convention on Biological Diversity - Tourism Guidelines picture
Client: CBD Secretariat
Date: 2014

The relationship between tourism and biodiversity is complex and yet critical in many destinations around the world, with great opportunities for positive engagement as well as destructive damage. The Tourism Company has been involved in this field for many years. In 2014 we were commissioned by the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity to work with them on the assessment of current issues and challenges, leading to a paper to inform the Conference of the Parties to the Convention in Korea in October 2014 and a revision of the Users’ Manual for the CBD Guidelines on Biodiversity and Tourism Development - available at www.cbd.int/tourism/doc/tourism-manual-2015-en.pdf
