Travel for LiFE Case Study Competition – 'Tourism for Tomorrow'


The G20 New Delhi Leaders' Declaration noted tourism and culture’s pivotal role in sustainable socio-economic development and prosperity. NDLD also noted the ‘Goa Roadmap for Tourism’, as a vehicle to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

India’s G20 Presidency provides a new direction for the tourism sector. GOA Roadmap for Tourism is a pioneering initiative that provides a blueprint for sustainable global tourism. Aligned with the theme of India’s G20 Presidency - “One Earth - One Family - One Future”, it underscores the role of tourism in society, the economy, and environmental stewardship.

G20 Goa Roadmap outlines the challenges, objectives, opportunities and recommendations for the tourism sector to achieve Sustainable Development Goals under five key priority areas namely Green Tourism, Digitalization, Skills, Tourism MSMEs, and Destination Management.

To create a lasting legacy for India’s G20 Presidency, the Ministry of Tourism has set up the G20 Tourism and SDG Dashboard, in collaboration with United Nations World Tourism Organization, UNWTO. This first-of-its-kind dashboard showcases the best practices and case studies from G20 countries, all aimed at achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and available for all public and private stakeholders.

As the country embarks on a journey of sustainability and innovation, the Ministry of Tourism is all set to take the G20 Momentum forward by accelerating the progress on the SDGs through tourism.
