Dimensión sociocultural de la sostenibilidad en Latinoamérica: avances y desafíos

Con su extraordinaria riqueza natural y cultural, Latinoamérica sigue padeciendo severas condiciones de pobreza. De acuerdo con la Comisión Económica para América Latina y el Caribe de la ONU, en 2019 el 30.5% de la población latinoamericana vive en condiciones de pobreza y esta proporción aumenta hasta el 45.9% en las zonas rurales.
Dada la dotación de recursos y el sostenido crecimiento de la demanda turística mundial, el turismo tiene el potencial para contribuir de manera más relevante al desarrollo sostenible de las sociedades latinoamericanas. Los panelistas, expertos de la región, debatirán sobre el papel del turismo en el impulso a mejorar las condiciones de vida de las poblaciones de los habitantes en las comunidades receptoras de turistas.

Social Dimension of Sustainability in Latin America: Advances and Challenges

Latin America with its extraordinary natural and cultural wealth suffers from severe conditions of poverty. According to the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, in 2019, 30.5% of the population lived in conditions of poverty, and this proportion had increased to 45.9% in rural areas.
Given the endowment of resources and the sustained growth of world tourism demand, this industry has the potential to contribute not only to the development of Latin American societies but also to make tourism sustainable and rewarding in this region. The panelists of this webinar will examine the living conditions in this region and will suggest organic ways that tourism can contribute to the wellbeing of the host communities.
