Tourism and Water: Protecting our Common Future

 

 


In support of United Nations International Year of Water Cooperation, World Tourism Day (WTD) 2013 was held under the theme Tourism and Water: Protecting our Common Future.

The 2013 theme highligted tourism’s role in water access, shingin a spotlight on the actions currently being taken by the sector in order to contribute to a more sustainable water future, as well as the challenges ahead.

Official WTD celebrations took place in The Maldives on September 27, but UNWTO will continue to address the many links between tourism and water.
