The Global Travel and Tourism Resilience Council serves the worldwide travel industry, facilitating planning and preparation for crisis response, recovery and resilience issues.

As an international network and forum for governments and businesses, the Resilience Council (RC) brings the public and private sectors together in the development of sustainable frameworks enabling business growth.

This platform has become the go to place for professionals from various industries to share and identify methodologies, as well as showcase tools and discover opportunities and risks.

Through sharing information and best practices in preparedness, crisis management, resilience and disaster recovery, destinations improve, businesses flourish and traveller mobility increases.

Partnering with governments and businesses around the globe, the key objectives of the resilience council are:

    • Global awareness and education for leaders and decision makers through peer-to-peer thought leadership. 
    • Resource sharing through best-in-breed companies and organisations with proven applications for sustainability and resiliency. 
    • Experiencial guidance and recognition by and for stakeholders in the travel and associated industries through stories and lessons learned. 
    • Response and recovery methodologies with global and regional applications for long-term success.

A Message From Our Co-Chairs

“No one can do it alone…Collectively, we can harness the power of tourism for resilience.”

Dr. Taleb Rifai, Former Secretary General, UNWTO

“The immediate future is not clear as to how quickly we bounce back and what will happen in the next two to three years. The travel industry is resilient. New products will emerge. There are huge opportunities in aviation, hotel services and tour products that will be on offer. Tourism will expand its ability to offer a seamless experience and one that is far more responsive to hygienic practices.  The future is bright, as people will relate better to each other and provide a more wholesome respect for cultures and diversity.”

Minister Edmund Bartlett, MP Government of Jamaica & Co-Chair of the Resilience Council
