Set to be on agenda for May general assembly
The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is working to convert the UNWTO Global Code of Ethics for Tourism into an international Convention, in order to increase the commitment of all stakeholders to its principles.
The process is being led by an intergovernmental Working Group composed of representatives of 36 UNWTO Member States.
Currently, the UNWTO Global Code of Ethics for Tourism, adopted in 1999, represents a voluntary instrument whereas, the future Convention on Tourism Ethics would constitute a binding agreement.
