COVID-19 and sustainable tourism

Goal: It seems that everyone involved in the travel sector has been affected by the coronavirus COVID 19 pandemic.

There are a number of interesting studies and articles and think-pieces that have been released during this time. Some of these share information on impacts of our dramatically changed travel patterns on industry and destinations, some include suggestions of proactive approaches, and some provide market insights.

This project is the start of a database of these papers, which I hope will provide quick-links to people looking for insights and ideas. It may also help us in the future, as we try to understand the implications of this massive global challenge.

The resources fall under the following headers:

1. Ideas to help resilience and recovery
2. Market research and intelligence
3. Impacts on tourism and destinations
4. Virtual tours and ideas to keep us inspired

I will add to the resources page over time, and please let me know if you have links you think would be useful to add.

EU study on COVID-19 and protected area tourism
In the framework of the study financed by the EU "Wildlife economy: sustainable tourism in protected areas", we want to understand the impact of COVID-19 on wildlife tourism in protected areas, considering the impact on protected areas, businesses and local communities.
To do so, we have a set of 40 questions for those offering accommodation, tours, services and activities in protected areas to visitors. The study will allow us to compare the period before the crisis with now, and estimates for the foreseeable future. We also ask about what kind of support might help (relating to the local value chains, and during different phases; conservation; business operations, policy interventions etc.) and on what terms these might work.
Individual responses will be held in confidence, and the results will be collated to motivate EU policy interventions.
If you are a tourism operator offering accommodation, tours, or activities in protected areas kindly complete this form by Friday 24 April 2020 using this link: https://lnkd.in/dJA9A4r
Please also share widely,
Thanks, Anna
