Tourism Climate Action

Glasgow Declaration

Working Group on Capacity Building


What is the role of the Working Group on Capacity Building?

The primary objective of the Working Group is to support the Glasgow Declaration’s goal of building travel and tourism’s basic knowledge, capacity, and the enabling environment for success in climate action. This includes:

  • Support the Coordinating Partners in the development of tools and resources designed for signatories and the sector at large, by contributing knowledge and providing feedback;
  • Provide recommendations to prioritise the development of specific tools, guidelines, trainings and knowledge exchange activities;
  • Ensure that the tools and resources under development address the needs of those organizations that are less advanced in climate action, aiming at leaving no one behind.
