Glasgow Declaration Implementation Report 2023 – Advancing Climate Action
The Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism Implementation Report 2023 presents the results of a systematic review of all progress updates received from signatories during the first reporting exercise conducted between January and June 2023 (over 400 updates), which in many cases include the submission of a Climate Action Plan (over 250 plans). The report represents a first-of-its-kind picture of the rapidly developing engagement of the tourism sector with the challenges of climate action. It captures the ways that plans are being created; the approaches taken to selecting and designing actions; challenges and opportunities connected to the different pathways of the Declaration (measure, decarbonize, regenerate, collaborate and finance); the collaborations undertaken to support progress; and the structures put in place to ensure delivery.
The implementation of the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism is being led by UNWTO within the framework of the Sustainable Tourism Programme of the One Planet network, where UNWTO collaborates closely with the UN Environment Programme (UNEP).
