Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The sustainable development of tourism has now become a priority of theWorld Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and a challenge for most destinations worldwide, especially at a time when tourism growth has been being rethought.Guinea-Bissau cannot be left behind in this great global challenge, which involves environmental preservation and a commitment to territorial economic cohesion of destinations and the valorization of their communities. This is what new management models are needed, based on the principles of sustainability that involve environmental, social and economic concerns.The present study used a set of secondary sources that allowed the characterization of Guinea-Bissau as a tourist destination and developed an exercise of auscultation with guincans on the perception of Guinea-Bissauas a sustainable destination, a total of 69 respondents to the questionnaire.The data collected made it possible to present a set of recommendations and actions to develop Guinea-Bissau with a view to sustainable management of the destination.In this dissertation the author hopes to realize his dream, which is to be able to make a contribution to responsible and sustainable tourism in Guinea-Bissau, the country that saw the author bom. It is important to create campaigns to promote gb's tourism potential, a very important campaign is to look for clubs that can help raise the name of the country in the jerseys, this is happening for example, with Rwanda in the jerseys of Paris Saint Germain and Arsenal "Visit Rwanda" the GB campaign can thus be Visit Guinea-Bissau.
