The proposed seed project consists of two main parts:
In the first part, a life cycle assessment (LCA) is conducted to analyze the environmental impact of tourism activities in Thailand. Based on the analysis, practical recommendations for providing these services more sustainably are developed.
In the second part, the partners will co-write joint funding proposals to be submitted to different funding agencies in Switzerland and Thailand to allow deeper analysis of tourism in Thailand.
