The United Nations have declared that 2017 as the International year of sustainable tourism for development. The year will no doubt focus on 3 sustainable development goals and how these can be achieved through tourism.

SDG 8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.

SDG 12: Ensure sustainable Consumption and Production patterns

SDG 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.

We look forward  what the UN and the UN World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) has planned abd we hope that it will raise awareness of the benefits of tourism in developing countries such as Timor-Leste

More information about the announcement can be found on the UNWTO website
