What We Do

Research

Very little is known about tourism’s impacts, what they are and how to manage them effectively to maximise benefits for destination communities and to ensure that all of tourism’s ‘costs’ and impacts are fully accounted for. We design and conduct bespoke research projects to bridge this gap, often devising new methodologies along the way. Research is a vital part of all of our work, informing our strategy, the creation of our training programmes and resources, the design and implementation of projects and our work to promote sustainable tourism.  To read our research reports, please visit our resources hub.
