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.
