Travel and Leisure

The travel and leisure sector is globally one of the most significant sectors, especially for emerging economies, as highlighted in three of the Sustainable Development Goals. To achieve the potential of the sector, a concerted effort by industry bodies and individual companies is needed to understand how children are affected – positively and negatively – by their business operations and value chains. Over the last decade there has been considerable efforts on particular child protection concerns, and now greater attention is needed to the broader range of impacts of tourism on children’s rights.
