7 IUCN & Tourism IUCN Global Programme Nature-based tourism and recreation is on the rise in parks, protected areas and other biodiversity hotspots across the planet. Tourism is included in the: Sustainable Development Goals and plays a role in at least 12 of the 20 CBD Aichi Biodiversity Targets Responsible tourism promotes environmental education, sustainable development, conservation finance, and community and visitor engagement in conservation. Challenges of tourism many examples of nature-based tourism demonstrate that operations and destinations are exceeding carrying capacity and/or do not have the right infrastructure, programmes and controls in place to prevent severe negative impacts to nature and local communities. IUCN has realised that more efforts to reduce anthropogenic impacts on wildlife and ecosystems from tourism are essential.
