Inclusive Tourism: Economic Opportunities

People with disability face a range of barriers in accessing infrastructure, services and products, hindering their participation in social and economic activities. These barriers can be physical, e.g. door width and steps limit accessibility for wheelchair users, or intellectual and sensory, e.g. signs or information are not easily read or interpreted. Inclusive tourism is a concept that refers to tourism services and products where people of all abilities feel welcome and wanted as customers and guests. In particular, it focuses on the process of enabling people with disability and groups with similar access needs to utilise tourism services. This report will showcase the growing demand for inclusive tourism and recreational services and the economic benefits of catering to the needs of people with disability.
