InterAmerican Development Bank

Professor Adam Blake was invited to review the InterAmerican Development Bank’s Tourism Sector Framework Document at a workshop in Washington D.C. on Tuesday 24th January 2017.

In addition to IDB staff, the workshop included speakers from the UN World Tourism Organisation and Sustainable Travel International. Reviewing the IDB’s current Tourism Sector Framework Document, in addition to some technical issues, Professor Blake expressed the need for greater detail in the lessons that have been learnt from previous IDB tourism lending projects, and that the document should be more precise in the way that it provides guidance and priorities for future lending.

The IDB are using the workshop as part of the process of a preparing for the publication of a revised framework later in the year.
