The webinar was held in view of the 25th anniversary of the Arctic Council as well as of the WWF Arctic Tourism guidelines and provided answers to the following questions:
1) What impact did the WWF Arctic tourism guidelines from 1996, and subsequent ones, produce, and what lessons can be learned from their value today?
2) What lessons from the Arctic Council’s programmes on Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) and Protection of Marine Environment (PAME) can be drawn to achieve more support from the tourism sector in the future?
3) What opportunities for the tourism sector do the 3 Rio Conventions this year offer so that the Arctic becomes the first region in the world to achieve most of the SDGs, in particular SDG 14 & 15, including the expected target of protecting 30% of its territory?
