In 2009, UNWTO, the United Nations’ specialized agency for tourism, joined forces with UN Women, the United Nations entity for gender equality and the empowerment of women, to prepare the first edition of the Global Report on Women in Tourism.
 
Based upon the success of the first Report, UNWTO, in cooperation with the German Development Agency (GIZ), UN Women, World Bank and Amadeus are collaborating in the preparation of the second edition.
 
The report will compile the latest statistical data and in-depth examples of good practice to illustrate the contribution tourism is making towards the UN Sustainable Development Goal 5 - Achieving Gender Equality and Empowering all Women and Girls.
 
During the launch event, high-level representatives from the 5 partners of the report will present the key-findings that have emerged from the research as well as examples of businesses and organisations from around the world who are leading the way for female empowerment in the tourism sector.
