This issue examines some of the major challenges, risks and opportunities for cultural tourism development, and what steps governments are taking to transition to more sustainable models of tourism development – today and in the post-COVID-19 context. Besides, SmartCulTour project is featured in the section related to «Regional Perspectives – Europe and North America».
The monthly online Culture and Public Policy Tracker aims to monitor the role of culture in public policy, including in the broader context of delivering on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Tracker builds on the ministerial dialogues launched in the framework of the Forum of Ministers of Culture, as well as the Culture & Covid-19: Impact and Response Tracker whose aim was to serve as a reactive monitoring tool to capture trends and measures at cultural policy level in response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide.
