DestiMED using Ecological Footprint Methodology in launch of pilot tests
Ecotourism is touted as a green option to traditional vacations, but how green is it? And how do we measure that? Global Footprint Network is collaborating with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the project DestiMED, to answer that question by developing an innovative approach to measuring and reducing the environmental impact of tourism, based on the Ecological Footprint framework.
destimed - part of the MEET NETWORK
DestiMED builds off the success of MEET (Mediterranean Experience of Ecotourism), a European project that is now a non-profit association and Destination Management Organization (DMO). MEET was established with the intent of fostering a regional governance system that will coordinate, enhance and promote protected area ecotourism across the Mediterranean Basin.
