Tourism opportunities: New Policy Insights published

The latest in our short-read collection of informative policy insights looks at how the CAP can contribute to rural tourism opportunities.

Rural tourism can generate economic and demographic benefits for rural communities and helps to maintain traditions and heritage. Yet tourism continues to be exposed to risks such as pandemics and other crises. EU policy actions help safeguard the resilience of rural tourism and the CAP includes funding options for food tourism and farm diversification, ecosystem services that enhance nature tourism as well as other rural opportunities in community-led and cultural tourism.

The content of the Policy Insight expands on how the CAP’s farm and forest funding can support sustainable tourism across a very broad spectrum of activities, including flora and fauna nature tours, fishing, cycling, kayaking, hunting, photography, camping and adventure tourism.
