The Croatian Sustainable Tourism Observatory
(CROSTO) has become a member of the UNWTO International Network of
Sustainable Tourism Observatories (INSTO).
The Observatory, hosted by the Institute for
Tourism in Zagreb, is responsible for monitoring sustainable
tourism in the Adriatic Croatia.
“Sustainable tourism development requires
adequate measurement and evidence-based decision-making,” said
UNWTO Secretary-General Taleb Rifai. “We are very pleased to
welcome the Croatian Sustainable Tourism Observatory to the UNWTO
INSTO Network. We trust it can make a key contribution to support
the vision set by Croatia for the future of its tourism sector; a
sector that contributes to the three pillars of sustainability:
economic, social and environmental.”
Croatia’s commitment to sustainability has been
emphasized in its Tourism Development Strategy 2020. The
initiative aims at fostering innovation in the framework of
sustainable tourism. The efforts of the country in that regard
have been recognized by the European Commission through the ETIS
Award to the City of Mali Lošinj. The breadth and depth of
insights gathered on sustainable tourism practices on the island
have been particularly praised in that recognition.
