Second Webinar is online

Webinar 2 October 2019 start slide

On 2 October 2019 the Roundtable Human Rights in Tourism conducted its second 1-hour webinar on "How can tour operators assess human rights impacts in their value chains?". 
20 international participants from different tourism stakeholder groups attended the webinar.

This one-hour webinar follows the 28 August webinar on the Roundtable’s “blueprint” tool with step-by-step guidance through the process of a destination specific human rights impact assessment (HRIA) for tour operators.

This second webinar was conducted shortly after the actual on-site assessment in Thailand and Myanmar, which took place from 5 to 17 September 2019.

The webinar focusses on how to assess potential and actual human rights-related impacts of business activities in a selected tourism destination. The first findings of the on-site assessment are shared and discussed:

  • How the on-site schedule was developed and what experiences were made?
  • How stakeholders were consulted and the results collected?
  • What challenges came up and what learnings were made?
  • How to develop and implement an action plan with follow-up measures based on the human rights impacts identified?

During the webinar, participants

  • receive up-to date information on the conducted on-site assessment,
  • hear about the analysis of the collected information,
  • learn how the results of the on-site assessment are implemented in the development of the blueprint tool,
  • learn about the development of follow-up measures and an action plan to address the issues identified, and
  • can ask questions and provide feedback on the methodology.
