Using the Toolkit 

 

 

The Toolkit is composed of two parts:¬†Part I: Introducing¬†the Toolkit ‚Äď a user guide; and Part II: Tourism-related¬†SDGs targets and potential indicators.

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 provided guidance on how to use the project-based indicators effectively within the project cycle.

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.
