According to the UNWTO (2021), “the future resilience of tourism will depend on the sector’s ability to embrace a low carbon pathway and cut emissions by 50% by 2030”.
Critically discuss this statement and evaluate the main challenges of such a significant reduction in emissions by 2030 from a destination perspective.The main body of the report should include:
• a clear definition of sustainable tourism development
• a short analysis of the concept of sustainable tourism development, including a discussion of key milestones in the sustainable development discourse (such as, but not limited to, the Brundtland Report, the Millennium Development Goals, Paris Agreement) and the three-pillar concept.
• a critical discussion of the UNWTO aim to cut carbon emissions from tourism by 50% by 2030, which should:
• consider the main sources of carbon emissions in tourism.
• analyse the environmental, economic and social implications of reaching this aim.
• evaluate what systems, processes or theories may contribute to the sustainable development of destinations, or pose barriers in its practical implementation.
• provide specific examples of how destinations around the world are strategically addressing the need to reduce emissions in our industry (you may focus on one destination only or use examples from several destinations).
• Appropriate academic and other theory to demonstrate concepts and support analysis, discussions and recommendations for future sustainable development.It is important that all of the points above are applied to a tourism context throughout by using contemporary examples.Individual reports should include:
• Executive Summary (not included in word count)
