Water Equity in Tourism: A Human Right - A Global Responsibility
New report highlights water injustice
Poorly regulated tourism and weak water governance are undermining access to water and sanitation for many peope in the global South.
This inequity is leading to social conflict, while hampering the tourism sector’s contribution to wider sustainable development.
Our latest hard-hitting report explores these issues through five case studies from Bali, The Gambia, Zanzibar, and Goa and Kerala in Southern India. It offers 9 Principles of Water Equity in Tourism, plus recommendations for governments, the tourism industry and civil society.
The report, Water Equity in Tourism: A Human Right, a Global Responsibility, was launched on July 9th at a special event at Portcullis House in London and is available to download here.
In the mean time please take a look at our campaign actions and help us to fight water injustice in the tourism industry...
