From the Green Travel Digest


Marcus L. Endicott publishes the informative Green Travel Digest. A recent issue mentions an impressive collaboration created "to advance the state-of-the-practice in sustainable tourism development." Can we convince the Global Sustainable Tourism Alliance (GSTA) that Universal Design is the logical completion of the sustainable tourism ethic?

Tomorrow's post will reference some of the resources available here on the blog that are available for making that case.

USAID Global Sustainable Tourism Alliance (GSTA)

Global Sustainable Tourism Alliance (GSTA)

The Global Sustainable Tourism Alliance (GSTA) is a single award,
five-year Leader with Associates (LWA) cooperative agreement funded
by USAID. Its purpose is twofold: to advance the state-of-the-
practice in sustainable tourism development and allied fields; and to
assist USAID Missions and other operating units to design and
implement innovative, integrated, and market-based tourism approaches
that will foster sustainable futures for individuals, local
communities, and societies in USAID-presence countries.
