The East Africa Community states are currently ranked between number 120 to 128 in the Global SDG Index. For all these states, tourism is a key economic driver. Therefore, tourism must engage and get involved in the SDG dialogue as it provides an opportunity to improve the regions ranking.
“We need more than 120 reasons/actions/solutions to move the region upward in SDG index ranking. Any formidable response from tourism will take concerted efforts and deliberate commitments by all, to make changes,” said Ms. Judy Kepher-Gona, Summit Host and Founder of STTA Kenya.
