Tourism is big business, but some operators are missing out. State and local governments have an interest in tourism and they can lead the way for operators. The Accessible Tourism for All Manual shows how.
The manual is a simplified version of a larger research project and this makes it easy to follow in five separate modules.
Module 1 gives a definition and context for accessible tourism. Module 2 is about accessibility chain, and Module 3 is about action and implementation.
Module 4 is about evaluation and progress, and Module 5 provides principles, tools and good practice examples.
The full title of the publication is, Accessible Tourism for All: An Opportunity Within our Reach. The research paper with greater detail is Manual on Accessible Tourism for All: Principles, Tools and Best Practices.
From the abstract:
The Manual on Accessible Tourism for All: Principles, Tools and Good Practices is intended to provide stakeholders with a useful tool to understand the needs of the tourism sector in terms of accessibility, the competitive advantages of tourism for all, and the methods for its implementation.
