    About the webinar

    Over the last decades, Tourism has become one of the most dynamic and fastest-growing and emerging economic sectors in the world. The importance of the tourism sector as a driver for job creation and the promotion of local economic development, culture and products is reflected in several of the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goals 8, 12 and 14, which set forth tourism-specific targets. Tourism contributes to job creation both directly and indirectly, particularly for women and young people. In 2019, the sector accounted for (directly and indirectly) some 330 million jobs worldwide, equivalent to 10.3 per cent of total global employment and one in 10 jobs globally. But COVID-19 has dramatically changed this. The impact on tourism enterprises and workers, the majority being young women, is unprecedented. Timely, large-scale and, in particular, coordinated policy efforts both at international and national levels are needed in consultation with governments, employers’ and workers’ representatives to recover the rapid decline of growth of this sector. The immediate imperative is to assure the survival of tourism sector stakeholders through large-scale public support without which the sector will collapse before the virus does.

    In this context, CMEE is planning to conduct an online webinar on ‘Tourism in the COVID-19 Pandemic Era: Challenges and the Way Forward'.
