Remote video URL

Tourism is a significant economic driver in the Pacific, contributing to revenue, employment, and cultural exchange. However, responsible tourism management is vital to ensure that our pristine environment and unique cultural heritage are preserved for future generations. To this end, SPREP, in collaboration with the Pacific Tourism Organization (SPTO), is developing a set of Environmental Auditing Guidelines specifically tailored for the tourism industry in the Pacific region. These guidelines are designed to support environmental and tourism regulators, as well as businesses, in their efforts to enhance compliance monitoring and sustainable practices within the tourism sector. This webinar explores the topic of auditing and compliance in the tourism sector and touches on the development of the guidelines, their relevance, and how they can contribute to shaping a more responsible and sustainable tourism landscape.
