Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase resource efficiency in tourism sector value chains.
The project will help countries to: 1) establish and analyse the sector’s inventory of GHG
emissions and sustainable products and services in the tourism value chains; 2) establish an integrated emissions reduction and resource efficiency action framework based on life cycle approaches, with specific indicators for mitigation/adaptation priorities; 3) build local institutional and networking capacities; 4) support national implementation and results reporting; and 5) enhance regional tourism networking, lessons and learning.
Impact and Results
Ultimately, the project will support decoupling of tourism growth from carbon emissions and assist the Philippines’ and the Dominican Republic to achieve their NDC objectives. The project will also close gaps related to the tourism sector’s contribution to GHG emissions reduction in line with NDC targets.
Over the longer term, these actions will strengthen the tourism sector’s capacity for evidence-based decision-making and the mitigation of GHG emissions, and improve resource efficiency in tourism value chain operations. These results are important for complying with the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Sustainable Development
