Policy Recommendations by the Med Sustainable Tourism Community

12/17/2019
The MED Sustainable Tourism Community is a transnational partnership of 18 sustainable tourism projects funded by the Interreg MED Programme. It aims to move towards sustainable coastal and maritime tourism by capitalising on project results and lessons learned.

The results and lessons learned from Community projects represent a unique knowledge asset that can help the transition to innovative tourism policies and practices based on sustainability principles.

The Community has identified the four most urgent action areas that will allow us to move towards sustainable coastal and maritime tourism in the Mediterranean: 

  1. Monitor sustainability: where are the knowledge gaps in tourism policy-making? What is the best way to bridge the gaps in tourism data?
  2. Reduce the environmental, cultural and social impacts of Mediterranean tourism.
  3. Ensure sustainable and responsible economic growth and prosperity in the Mediterranean through tourism. What is the best way to address the complexity of the tourism sector, including local actors, decision-makers and consumers?
  4. Establish governance mechanisms that lead the wide variety of stakeholders towards more sustainable, more responsible tourism.
