Sustainable development in Deserts
According to the UNWTO ‘This new UNWTO handbook addresses the development of tourism in deserts and areas that are experiencing desertification. It is aimed at the international community, and in particular the governments of countries with desert areas within their territories, as well as the international, national and local private-sector actors that operate in them, with a view to helping them implement policies and actions, and to provide them with a resource they can rely upon in carrying out their initiatives. It is also a valuable reference for local desert communities, who are the main stakeholders in this process.
