Objective: To launch Sustainable Development Framework and taking the SDF ACCORD by the Tourism Industry and deliberations on Financing SDG’S in India.
United Nations Global Compact Network of India (UN GCNI) along with International Institute of Corporate Social Responsibility (IICSR) with the support of Ministry of Tourism, Government of India, is organizing “Global Summit on Sustainable Tourism and Impact Investment – 2018”for the Tourism industry to take an ACCORD of sustainable development framework and deliberate on SDG incentives. The various Tourism Associations such as FAITH, TAAI, FHRAI, and others along with the Central and State policymakers, Business Owners and International & National Investors would be a part of the event.
Sustainable development framework (SDF) is developed in alignment with 17 UN Sustainable development goals (SDGs) of which India is a signatory. A platform for the Indian Tourism Industry to take an ACCORD and set targets is created here. Alongside, modes to finance SDGs in India would be deliberated by the Indian and Global investors, business heads, and policymakers.
The Indian subcontinent is among the first to make CSR “comply or explain” but has yet to introduce SDG incentives for the investment community to promote companies proactive on sustainable development. The Indian Tourism Industry would be the 1stone where the SDG incentives would be applied and which would take the ACCORD of sustainable development.
This platform is the launch of these initiatives with an aim is to understand the pain points for the sustainable development of tourism industry in conjunction with the expectations of the global investors.
