Leisure & tourism

Leisure & tourism

The United Nations has declared 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development (#IY2017). The International Year aims to raise awareness on the contribution of sustainable tourism to development among decision-makers and the public, while mobilizing all stakeholders to work together in making tourism a catalyst for positive change.

CABI is delighted to be a Friend of the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.

Since the 1970s, CABI has been covering the global literature on travel, tourism, leisure, recreation, sport, hospitality and culture. CABI offers unique resources supporting research and learning; collating information not just from specialist journals and books in the leisure and tourism fields, but also all relevant material from CABI’s wider coverage in rural development, health, economics and the environment. 

The Leisure Tourism internet resource is the complete information service covering leisure, recreation, sport, hospitality, tourism and culture. We also publish a wide range of books covering all aspects of leisure and tourism.
