Abstract (150 Words)

The World Tourism Organization is of the position that tourism can play a significant role in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). The subject of Tourism and the attainment of the SDGs has expectedly been the focus of numerous articles and researches. However, while it is noted that Disaster Risk Reduction and Management is a compelling need for the sustainable development of the industry, there is an apparent dearth in literature on the link between DRRM in Tourism and the attainment of the SDG’s.

Noting that tourism is an industry that is highly vulnerable to the environment, this conceptual paper highlights the relevance of Disaster Risk Reduction and Management in Tourism and proposes a model that can serve as a guideline for stakeholders in order to pursue initiatives and measures that can contribute to the attainment of the SDG’s.
