How can destinations encourage and promote local food systems to foster best practices in sustainable tourism? Here we look to Spain as a prime example, and how local stakeholders can work toward a longer-term vision, where well-managed tourism equates to sustainable economic growth for Catalonia. This region boasts an interconnected and exciting ecosystem, which contributes to its sustainable, culinary footprint.

In this report you will learn:

    • What sustainability means for the travel industry in light of overtourism
    • The rise of the “local food” movement, and its impact on tourism
    • The connection between food systems, economic development, and sustainable tourism
    • Food, culture and Catalonia’s rural tourism industry
