In the framework of Interreg MED Horizontal project BleuTourMed_C3 (Maritime and Coastal Sustainable Tourism in the Mediterranean), the french partner Plan Bleu and the lead partner Arco Latino are launching a call for applicants for supporting the production of 4 policy factsheets on sustainable tourism in the Mediterranean.

Four main issues have been identified by BleuTourMed project, in order to guide joint actions and the capitalization of the Community’s results. So the topics of the policy factsheets are as follows:

1. Monitoring the sustainability of tourism: what are the knowledge gaps of policy-making processes? How to bridge the data gaps on tourism?
2. How to reduce the environmental-cultural- social impacts of tourism in the Mediterranean region?
3. How can the tourism sector ensure a sustainable and responsible economic growth and prosperity in the Mediterranean region?
4. How to address the complexity of the tourism sector, including local actors, decision-makers and consumers? Governance mechanisms to guide a wide variety of stakeholders towards a more sustainable and responsible tourism.

The objective of this call for applicants is to select experts to draft the 4 policy factsheet. Applications must be submitted no later than 18th September 2018 and must contain a letter of interest with clear mention of the factsheet the expert is applying for, a CV and an economic offer.
