According to the UNWTO head, although the pandemic hit tourism harder than any other sector of the economy, the so-called chimney-free industry needs government support to rebuild in a sustainable and inclusive way.

Pololikashvili noted that such support must now be provided through stronger public-private partnerships and more and better targeted financial investments.

Returning to the previous normality is not an option, remarked the UNWTO leader, who in his intervention at a meeting of Tourism ministers held within the framework of the London fair called to take advantage of the opportunity to reinforce awareness and sustainability .

The UNWTO and other institutions in the tourism and travel sector plan to launch the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism at the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) that has been taking place in that Scottish city since last Sunday.

The World Travel and Tourism Council is also seeking to announce its roadmap to net zero carbon emissions by 2050, as part of its support for the industry’s fight against environmental degradation and global warming.
