Project Description

Further development of sustainable tourism: identification of synergy effects to strengthen cooperation with and between key actors

Due to a lack of data, criteria and corresponding methodological concepts, a quantitative assessment of the sustainable development of tourism in Germany is not yet possible.

The aim of the research project is to develop a concept for the collection of empirical information regarding the sustainable development of the cross-sectional tourism industry in the sense of an extended tourism satellite account and to apply the findings exemplarily. On the basis of the information, it should be possible to derive indications in which areas the German tourism industry and policymakers would have to develop activities and set the course in order to strengthen and expand sustainable tourism offerings.
