    Reduce inequality within and among countries

    By Antje Monshausen, Tourism Watch - Bread for the World, and Wolfgang Obenland, Global Policy Forum

    Projections on the basis of current and previous developments regarding inequalities show that a trend reversal is absolutely essential to accomplish SDG 10. The established and popular assumption that growth in tourism automatically leads to development and diminishes inequalities is not realistic. Sustainable Tourism is not a goal in itself. Modest socio-economic or ecological adjustments in production (this is usually understood by 'sustainable tourism') will not bring the necessary change. Sustainability in tourism needs to be measured against the ways in which tourism contributes to reducing inequalities.
