This Elgar Companion comprises theoretical, empirical, and conceptual chapters from leading international scholars, reflecting on critical debates and developments surrounding the role of tourism in progressing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Paying particular attention to the impact of tourism in a polycrisis era the Companion critically analyses how tourism may progress the SDGs alongside the requirements of the 2030 agenda framework, and/or how SDG progress may be stifled given various crises. Using global case studies, contributing authors provide insightful solutions to the challenges of implementing sustainability agendas.

The Elgar Companion to Tourism and the Sustainable Development Goals provides an excellent reference for scholars studying tourism and hospitality, environmental studies and government and political studies. Policy makers will also find the expert guidance contained within this Companion to be a useful resource for their day-to-day practices.
