About the programme
The 10YFP Sustainable Tourism Programme (STP) envisons a tourism sector that has globally adopted sustainable consumption and production (SCP) practices resulting in enhanced environmental and social outcomes and improved economic performance. Its mission is to catalyze a transformation for sustainability, through evidence-based decision making, efficiency, innovation, collaboration among stakeholders, monitoring and the adoption of a life cycle approach for continuous improvement.
In the spotlight
Actors of the programme
10YFP STP is a partnership led by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) with the Governments of France, Morocco and the Republic of Korea as co-leads.
A Multi-stakeholder Advisory Committee (MAC), consisting of governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations, private sector businesses, intergovernmental organizations as well as academia and UN agencies, is supporting the Lead and Co-Leads in their efforts to mainstream SCP in the tourism sector.
A number of Partners have also joined the 10YFP STP and are participating in its implementation.
Portfolio of work
The 10YFP STP Portfolio of Work has been designed as a tool for programme Actors (Lead, Co-Leads, MAC and Partners) to include new and ongoing initiatives and activities under the umbrella of the programme, given their potential to contribute to its overall goal and specific objectives. The Portfolio aims to increase the visibility of initiatives and activities at the international level as well as to boost synergies and collective action among the programme Actors while advancing the implementation of the different Programme Work Areas.
Integrating sustainable consumption and production (SCP) patterns in tourism related policies and frameworks
Collaboration among stakeholders for the improvement of the tourism sector’s SCP performance
Fostering the application of guidelines, tools and technical solutions to improve, prevent and mitigate tourism impacts and to mainstream SCP patterns among tourism stakeholders
