Draft International Guidelines on Sustainable Tourism

A number of individual biosphere reserves and World Heritage sites are promoting sustainable tourism projects at the field level. Among the tools are guidelines on biodiversity and tourism development, prepared under the aegis of UNEP and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

The guidelines seek to assist policy and decision makers and managers responsible for tourism and biodiversity and cover a wide range of tourism activities -- including conventional mass tourism, ecotourism, culture-based tourism, cruise tourism, leisure and sports tourism.
