Within the framework of the activities of the UNWTO Affiliate Members Working Group on SDGs Support, we are organizing the Expert Meeting on Tourism and the SDGs: Case Studies by the UNWTO Affiliate Members. This event intends to provide a specialized platform to share experience and knowledge on tourism and SDGs. The case studies will present the work on each SDG by sharing actions and strategies carried out by the Members of the Working Group on SDGs Support. Furthermore, the challenges and lessons learnt will be presented and discussed.


  • To recognize the importance of incorporating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into the tourism practices, Strategies and activities;
  • To share and exchange knowledge, views, experiences and case studies by the UNWTO Affiliate Members related to each SDG;
  • To identify potential areas of work and projects on each SDG and tourism;
  • To provide recommendations on contributing to the SDGs.

There is just 10 years left to achieve the Goals set forth in the 2030 Agenda. By sharing some examples and presenting the work of the Working Group, the debates aim at inspiring and encouraging the tourism private sector and civil society in achieving these goals by incorporating them into their activities and strategies.
