Deutsche Tourismusaußenpolitik zwischen GATS und CSD
The strain placed on the environment by the tourism industry has grown drastically from year to year.

In this study, Ecologic reviewed the development of Bulgaria's environmental quality and provided an overview of the development of Bulgaria's environmental policy, including its legal foundations and environmental policy instruments.

On this basis, the analysis also identified areas in which extensive advising and investments by bilateral and multilateral institutions were needed to support Bulgaria in the area of environmental policy as it moves toward European Union membership. The study was prepared for experts in national environmental administrations and multilateral institutions.Read more
