Manual on Accessible Tourism for All

Public-private Partnerships and Good Practices

Persons with disabilities make up a significant part of the world’s population. Their number is on the rise due to the ageing trend being observed in certain regions and the concomitant increased prevalence of illnesses. This report focuses on the supply-side perspective. It takes into account the market needs generated by the demand for tourism for all and the sustainability of the production of goods and services created to provide accessibility. The ACS Foundation has sponsored surveys to ascertain the needs and opinions of the users of architectural-historical heritage. The document gives an overview of tourism for all, and examines the Spanish and international regulatory framework (guidelines and recommendations of the World Tourism Organization, the United Nations and European institutions). The report then explains the concept of public-private partnership and summarizes the main activities of the ACS Foundation and of the Real Patronato sobre Discapacidad (Spanish Royal Board on Disability).
