Towards a data-driven policy agenda for tourism

Nov 5, 2021 | 6:45 AM - 8:15 AM


Topics for discussion: ● Are current systems of tourism data and statistics sufficient to measure the economic, environmental and social dimensions of tourism? ● What are the current gaps in tourism measurement frameworks? ● What role can new and non-conventional data sources play in filling existing and emerging data gaps, and how can these be integrated into tourism data systems? ● What approaches can be used to deliver more timely and granular data? ● What priorities and improvements to support a data-driven policy agenda, and provide a sufficient evidence base for the development and evaluation of tourism policies and actions?
