The BSPC Rapporteur on Sustainable Tourism, Ms Birgit Hesse, President of the State Parliament of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, has published her comprehensive 2022 –2023 Report on Developments in Sustainable Tourism.
This fifth BSPC Report on Sustainable Tourism in the Baltic Sea Region follows the established tradition. It provides an overview of the region’s recent political trends and projects connected to sustainable tourism. In addition, it presents the main developments in sustainable tourism, informs about the core meetings and events of the past two years, and contains prospects and outlooks.
The introduction provides comparative figures on the development in this policy field. It includes information on the current and further impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine on the tourism sector and further crises.
In this respect, it serves as a basis for discussing tourism development in the Baltic Sea region, considering the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the current and future challenges but also offers a reflection on the prospects aiming at raising the sustainability and resilience of Baltic Sea tourism in the future.
