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?

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.
