Technical INSTO Webinar on: Local Satisfaction with Tourism During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Technical INSTO Webinar on: Local Satisfaction with Tourism During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Tuesday, 25 May 2021 | 12:00 (CEST) | Zoom Session

The wellbeing of host communities is highly relevant when measuring the impact of tourism on destination level. Communities can be impacted both positively from tourism through jobs, economic activity and improved social services and negatively due to stress or damage on local resources and cultural values. Changes in level of satisfaction can be an early warning indicator of potential incidents and a means to obtain information about emerging problems and irritants before they become serious.

This webinar discussed experiences and lessons learned by some Members of the UNWTO International Network of Sustainable Tourism Observatories (INSTO). The observatories shared and discussed insights on the methods of questionnaires, surveys and interviews, as well as the potential impact of results on the recovery of tourism in their destinations.
