EU Tourism Dashboard” a new tool to help policymakers at the country and regional levels to steer policies and strategies in the tourism ecosystem

The European Commission launched in 2022 the EU Tourism Dashboard, a new tool to help policy makers at country and regional level to steer policies and strategies in the tourism ecosystem. The aim of this tool is to improve access to statistics and policy-relevant indicators for tourism, supporting destinations and public authorities in tracking their progress in the green and digital transition. The dashboard will allow tourism decision makers – be it countries or regions – to identify socio-economic vulnerabilities, thus supporting the development of effective strategies for tourism. The dashboard is an interactive web platform, visualising statistical data and newly developed tourism indicators, organised under four areas: environmental impacts, digitalisation, socio-economic vulnerability, and basic tourism descriptors. The data and indicators can be consulted in two ways: through destination, where information is available for one single tourist destination (country or region), and through an indicator map view, where the user can see how a specific indicator varies across tourist destinations. The Dashboard is made available at its launch in all official EU languages through machine translation. How this Good Practice could be used/ transferred?
