The forum is part of the sustainable tourism initiative, one of the five key projects from the MOU between the MCST and the UNEP that have been underway since 2013.


The forum, where representatives from 20 major UNEP member states and the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) will be present, is expected to serve as a platform for discussion on sharing and spreading actual cases of responsible production and consumption by entities within tourism-related industries. Topics include sustainable tourism and sustainable development through technical innovation that expedites the transition to green tourism in addition to best practices (by Korea and other nations) of countering climate change.
