It recognises and contributes to global sustainable tourism actions adopted by international institutions and world leaders; this includes the One Planet Network Glasgow Declaration: Climate Action in Tourism with which this declaration is aligned, and many of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

ZTITE 2023 aims to promote eco-tourism by effectively managing and conserving Zanzibar’s cultural, environmental and historical resources.

The ZTITE2023 aspires to:

  • Attract strategic tourism investments
