Buenos Aires Joins International Network of Sustainable Tourism Observatories

Buenos Aires has become the latest city to join the International Network of Sustainable Tourism Observatories (INSTO), an initiative of the UNWTO aimed at helping destinations better manage tourism.

This latest INSTO member, the first in Argentina, brings the total number of observatories in the global network to 27.

Joining INSTO will help the Tourism Observatory of Buenos Aires better monitor the environmental and social impacts of tourism at the local level. Data collected by the observatory will be used to strengthen the sustainability of the city’s tourism sector and help guide policy and decision making.

Mr. Gonzalo Robredo, President of the Buenos Aires Tourism Board, said, “By joining the INSTO Network, we reinforce our commitment to maximising the benefits of the tourism activity in the city of Buenos Aires, not only from an economic perspective, but with a focus on the cultural, social and environmental dimensions of tourism. We believe that sustainability is a key to guaranteeing that tourism has a positive impact on local communities while also providing visitors with an authentic tourist experience.”

The new INSTO member will join the global INSTO Meeting on 22 and 23 October 2019 at the UNWTO Headquarters in Madrid, where monitoring experiences are shared annually to further strengthen the collective commitment to generate regular and timely evidence about tourism impacts around the world.

“By becoming the latest member of our dynamic INSTO network, the city of Buenos Aires once again demonstrates its commitment to responsible and sustainable tourism,” said UNWTO Secretary-General, Zurab Pololikashvili. “Thanks to the pioneering work of the Observatory, Buenos Aires is benefitting from an evidence-based approach to tourism policies and I am confident that our newest member will make a positive contribution to our growing INSTO network.”
