Many destinations struggle to keep up with demand for tourist infrastructure

Philippines tourism departmentMany destinations want to keep up with their competitors and promote their respective plans for growing and better managing tourism as some cities’ tourist infrastructure can’t keep up with demand.

 
Few tourism boards and researchers spoke about this at the UNWTO International Conference on Tourism Statistics last month in Manilla, the Philippines. Some of the discussions focused on creating a global framework for measuring tourism and how to use data to create sustainable growth plans.

 
Delegates from around 88 countries attended the conference and were part of the United Nation’s 2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism For Development.

 
Geoffrey Lipman, a professor of sustainable tourism growth at Hasselt University in Limburg, Belgium, said during the conference, “Tourism happens at the community level and it’s at that level that we’ll need to translate this kind of evolving thinking into first off, language that ordinary mortals understand.”

 
Portugal, for example, has seen a surge of tourists in recent years and its government recently announced a set of goals aimed at the economic, environmental and social and cultural impact of tourism. Programs such as Smart Open Lisbon, launched earlier this year, will enable12 start-ups to try and improve how residents and tourists share transportation options and make buildings more environmentally friendly.
