Call for Proposals: Study to identify tourist profile with disabilities

 

A Call for Proposals to study the profile of travelers with disabilities was issued by Brazil's Ministry of Tourism and the Human Rights Secretariat of the Presidency to stimulate the development of joint activities that strengthen the inclusive tourism in Brazil. Proposals to execute a "Study of Tourist Demand of People with Disabilities" may be submitted until September 10 at the UNESCO portal.

.

The goal is to gather information to identify the characteristics, behaviors and needs of the consumer public. The work also enables analysis of this segment in relation to infrastructure and service at tourism destinations.

 

The proposal will be used to disseminate findings to the supply chain of tourism as well as to sensitize public and private managers on the adequacy of services offered to tourists with disabilities.

 

The project will also contribute to the adoption of measures in pursuit of the fulfillment of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, with regard to the participation of this population in cultural, recreational and sports. (Article 30)

 

The Tourism Ministry has various initiatives on urban accessibility, adaptation of tourist activities and dissemination of information on the topic.
