The UNWTO hosted the 4th Meeting of International Network of Sustainable Tourism Observatories (INSTO). Over 100 experts attended from gathering observatories around the world as well as other stakeholders from the public, private and academic field.
Observatories and industry experts shared latest techniques and experiences with the measurement of the mandatory issue areas (local satisfaction with tourism, destination economic benefits, employment, tourism seasonality, energy and water management, sewage management, solid waste management, governance) as well as the measurement of CO2 emissions and accessibility at destination level. The program included a mentoring breakfast for new and interested destinations.
During the meeting, recognition was given to the 2019 5 new observatories: Navarre (Spain), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Antigua Guatemala (Guatemala), South West Australia (Australia) and the Thompson Okanagan (Canada).
