CTO to focus on climate at St Kitts forum

The Caribbean Tourism Organisation has teamed up with the ministry of tourism in St. Kitts to host a sustainable tourism forum.

Themed Good for Us, Better for All, the Climate Smart Sustainable Tourism Forum is being held as part of the UNWTO International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.

The forum will bring together local, regional, and international representatives from public and private sector tourism entities, as well as development agencies that offer programmes in sustainable tourism, for three days of interactive engagements.

Major elements will include best practice sharing and strategic consultations for a CTO climate adaptation project funded by the Caribbean Development Bank, in order to strengthen holistic destination management approaches in the Caribbean.

The event will also feature experiential field visits, a meeting of CTO’s Sustainable Tourism Technical Committee, and winning presentations from CTO’s Primary School Tourism Writing Competition.

The event culminates with the presentation ceremony for CTO’s 2017 Sustainable Tourism Awards which recognise regional sustainability champions.

The forum will run from September 6 to 8.
