Using The toolkit

Using the Toolkit 

 

The Toolkit is composed of two parts:¬†Part I: Introducing¬†the Toolkit ‚Äď a user guide, where users will find instructions on how to navigate their way through the Toolkit and Part II, where they will be introduced to tourism-related¬†SDGs targets and potential indicators. Users are also able to search for indicators by SDGs and themes using a theme table created in Part I.¬†

Part I of the Toolkit explores the rationale for having indicators and provides a brief explanation of what the toolkit contains and how tourism related SDGs targets were selected. It gives an overview of how the present work positions among the several existing systems and frameworks catering for tourism and sustainable development. It describes why project-based indicators are necessary and explains how they can help tourism project managers better track progress towards the achievement of the SDGs. The Toolkit also provides guidance on how to use the project-based indicators effectively within the project cycle.

Users are able to search for indicators by going through the theme table (Table 3.1) which was devised by grouping indicators created for different targets in Part II. 

Part II of the Toolkit is structured into 17 chapters, each dedicated to a specific SDG. Each chapter explains the link between the specific SDG and tourism. It then provides an overview of the selected SDG targets, their relevance to tourism and presents potential indicators which are categorized under different themes and sub-themes. The potential indicators are designed to be adaptable to suit the reality of each project, enabling users to effectively work towards achieving the identified SDG targets
