Mitigating Environmental Challenges caused by Tourism in the Mediterranean region

How can cities mitigate the environmental challenges caused by tourist activities?

Ecostack Innovations has been acting as a consultant for the development and evaluation of proposed regional and local action plans, within the tourism sector, focusing on water and waste management, efficient energy use and sustainable mobility, as part of the INCIRCLE project.

The INCIRCLE project aims to support insular and scarcely inhabited MED areas to meet the increasing environmental challenges caused by tourist activities by promoting the application of circular economy principles in the tourism sector.

During this work national, regional and local action plans were evaluated using an approach developed by Ecostack Innovations to assess stakeholder involvement, financing of interventions and actions and relevance to regional and national policies. Finally, recommendations were made to enhance the feasibility of the plans for each territory.
