Kaselehlia from the SPTO Division of Sustainable Tourism!
In this month’s Pacific Sustainable Tourism Newsbeat issue, we feature the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM).
The FSM is a nation of 607 islands, atolls and islets spread across more than 700 square kilometres of the North – Western Pacific Ocean. The four states that make up this island nation are Pohnpei, Yap, Kosrae and Chuuk.
Every year in the FSM, the month of March is dedicated to celebrating the nation’s culture and heritage. This Newsbeat Issue will uncover how each of the four states celebrated their unique culture this year.
Read more on the Pohnpei State Senator promoting tourism to boost economic growth and sustainability at the Pacific Asia Travel Association Micronesia Chapter and how the country is journeying towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Refresh your memory or learn about the ruined basalt city on the South-East coast of Pohnpei, known as the Nan Madol Ceremonial Centre of Eastern Micronesia.
The Resource of the Month is the Climate Action in the Tourism Sector: Overview of Methodologies and Tools to measure Greenhouse Gas Emissions released by the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO).
In the Sustainable News section, we are sharing examples of sustainable tourism programmes from Papua New Guinea, Kiribati, Samoa and French Polynesia.
Lastly, look out for the upcoming events and announcements in the Newsbeat. Please share the Tender for the Consultancy services to develop the Pacific Cultural & Heritage Guidelines & conduct the Sustainable Tourism Assessment of Pacific World Heritage Sites that is out now.
Let us continue to collectively work together as a Pacific region to achieve sustainable tourism by 2030.
