The Charter was signed in Tunisia on 26 November 2019 by British Ambassador Louise de Sousa, Minister of Tourism Rene Trabelsi and Clare Jenkinson, Senior Manager for Destinations and Sustainability for ABTA. It was developed in partnership with:
- the Municipality of Hammamet, a tourist resort in Tunisia
- the Tunisian Ministry of Tourism
- ANGED (Tunisia’s waste management agency)
- the Federation of Tunisian Hoteliers
This Charter sets goals that are intended to lead to a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly tourism industry in the pilot area of Hammamet, before expanding across Tunisia.
