Sustainable tourism is increasingly relevant in national agendas for its role in fostering economic growth, social inclusiveness and the protection of cultural and natural assets. This is now also recognized at the highest international level with the UN General Assembly having adopted several resolutions acknowledging the role of tourism in sustainable development, including the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 

All this calls for evidence to support policy and track progress. Therefore, a statistical framework is being developed—one that integrates the various dimensions of sustainable tourism (economic, environmental and social) and across relevant spatial levels (global, national and subnational).

 

The Manila Conference will be a landmark opportunity to discuss methodological advances, explore emerging issues and learn from pioneering country experiences in this area of measurement. UNWTO recognizes that, apart from being a technical exercise, the development and implementation of a statistical framework for sustainable tourism is very much a strategic endeavour that will require stakeholder engagement, inter-institutional coordination and political leadership.

 

In the context of the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development 2017,  the Conference will gather Ministers, Statistical Chiefs, Policy experts and statisticians dedicated to sustainable development, environment and tourism.

UNWTO Conference on Tourism: a Catalyst for Development, Peace and Reconciliation

Approve event:

Short event's name : 
UNWTO Conference on Tourism: a Catalyst for Development, Peace and Reconciliation (11-14 July 2016, Passikudah, Sri Lanka)
11 July 2016 - 14 July 2016
Location: 

 

Sri Lanka celebrates this year (2016) the golden jubilee of the establishment of its formal National Tourism Organization which started off as the “Ceylon Tourist Board” in 1966. It precedes the declaration in 1967 by the United Nations of the ‘International Tourism Year’ with the tagline ‘Tourism: Passport to Peace’. The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has, through the years, supported the UN’s call made almost 5 decades ago to consider tourism as a means to promote peace.

It is relevant that Sri Lanka was one of the pioneering countries in Asia to develop its tourism industry on a firm and planned basis, which regrettably, was affected by an ethnic conflict lasting over two decades that had deep repercussions on the country as a whole and on the tourism sector in particular. While tourism did continue to maintain its presence in the country it could not be developed to its full potential and furthermore   certain areas such as the North and East were partially inaccessible. However, with the cessation of hostilities in 2009 there has been a rapid and noteworthy recovery in tourism. The total arrivals in 2009 amounted to 448,000 and this figure almost doubled to 856,000 in 2011.The path to peace and reconciliation has been paved by a change in the political landscape of Sri Lanka in 2015 with the establishment of a unity government which comprises the mainstream political parties, an occurrence that is unique in the annals of Asian politics. The main aim of the national Government is to restore peace and bring about reconciliation.

The latest figures of tourist arrivals to Sri Lanka for 2015 indicate an increase of 17.8% over the previous year reaching almost 1.8 million visitors. The Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA) has targeted 2.5 million arrivals for 2016. These estimates have been based on viable policies and plans that take into consideration effective marketing and promotional campaigns. The opportunities for tourism development are great, nevertheless the challenges for recovery and reconciliation call for thought, discussion and a concerted plan of action by the public and private sectors.

It is in this context that the UNWTO conference on “Tourism: a Catalyst for Development, Peace and Reconciliation” has been scheduled in the Eastern seaside resort of Passikudah in Sri Lanka, from the 11th to the 14th July 2016.
