"This is the second time that Guyana will be hosting STC. Since its successful hosting of STC-4 in 2000 received rave reviews from delegates, Guyana has promised that STC-13 will top that accomplishment. STC-13 has been themed “Keeping the Right Balance: Sustaining Our Resources”. It will not only explore best practices relating to the issues surrounding how tourism sustainability and engaged communities can better interconnect with biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation initiatives, but will also bring new insight into advancements in evolving special interest tourism niches such as adventure tourism. STC-13 will also focus on agro and culinary tourism as well as how to market sustainable tourism products. Additionally, it will demonstrate using global and regional examples, how planning for better resource (e.g. water, energy, biodiversity) management in relation to critical tourism-related infrastructure can contribute to tourism sustainability and reduce the impacts of climate change." -- Caribbean Tourism Organization
