Global Tourism Resilience Day

In 2023, the United Nations (UN) General Assembly designated February 17 as Global Tourism Resilience Day. The purpose of this day is to underscore the necessity for developing tourism resilience to effectively manage unforeseen challenges, recognizing the susceptibility of the tourism sector to emergencies.

With support from over 90 countries, the resolution was initially proposed by a coalition including the Bahamas, Belize, Botswana, Cabo Verde, Cambodia, Croatia, Cuba, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, Georgia, Greece, Guyana, Jamaica, Jordan, Kenya, Malta, Namibia, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Spain, and Zambia.

Tourism resilience serves as a strategy to enhance sustainability following ecological or environmental disasters, providing an alternative pathway for recovery from stress induced by tourism.
