TSDI 2020 Index – What we will assess ?
In this project, we are aiming at the development of a unique sustainable development indicator for the tourism industry. This indicator has to be resilient regarding data gaps and at the same time flexible to accommodate heterogeneous and new data sources throughout time. Moreover, the indicator has to be meaningful from a scientific perspective and reflect the correlation between the economic development of the tourism activity and its environmental impact.
