This year’s ATDI report is published with a companion report ‘GSTC Global Destination Sustainability Report,’ which is designed to more deeply explore the sustainability dimension of adventure tourism competitiveness worldwide. This report is a product of a partnership with the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). The companion report analyzes 24 destinations that have applied the GSTC Destination Criteria and Indicators. These geographically diverse destinations vary in their level of tourism development. When used as a companion piece to the ATDI, the GSTC analysis provides additional insights into destination sustainability challenges and opportunities. While the ATDI is focused on country-level competitiveness insights, the GSTC-D report is regional and local in scope. An in-depth side-by-side analysis of the ATDI and the GSTC-D is featured throughout the document.

The 2020 Edition of the Adventure Tourism Competitiveness Index’ and the companion report ‘GSTC Global Destination Sustainability Report’ are available for a free on ATTA website.
