Abstract: Scholars and practitioners gathered for the 9th International Conference on Tourism andSustainable Development conference in Kathmandu between 16th and 18th May, 2018,following a very successful conference in the same location in 2017. Over 70 contributors fromall over the world presented over 50 papers and keynotes covering many issues regarding theinterface between tourism and its contribution to development. As Professor David Simmons,University of Lincoln, noted, these issues were particularly pertinent this year after the releaseof the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the designation of 2017 asthe International Year of Tourism for Sustainable Development by the UNWTO (WorldTourism Organisation, 2018). While all the SGDs have some relevance to tourism, Goal 8 (thepromotion of sustained, inclusive and economic growth) and Goal 12 (sustainable consumptionand production patterns) alongside sustainable use of the environment (Goals 14 and 15) havebeen identified as being of specific focus for tourism planners and managers. Of course tourismdevelopment is not without its many problems, including a legacy of impacts and exploitation,highlighted by Dr Wendy Sealy in her expose of dependency and foreign domination inCaribbean tourism.
