Objectives

To support tourism sector activities of Morocco at the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP 22) that will take place between 7th and 18th of November 2016 in Marrakesh, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the governments of France and the Kingdom of Morocco are collaborating as parts of the Sustainable Tourism Programme of the 10-Year Framew ork of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP STP) to provide a series of stimulating, sector focused climate webinars. These webinars will reflect 10YFP STP ambition to promote tools and solutions among decision makers and private sector for greener and more sustainable tourism.

The present webinar addresses the issue of the climate change and the tourism activities impacts of the World Heritage Sites. The overriding concern is preserving Outstanding Universal Value – that is, heritage that is exceptional from an artistic, historic or typological standpoint, and which merits preservation for the benefit of mankind.
