Project Management for Sustainable Development (PM4SD®) forms the basis of a new methodology for designing and managing successful tourism projects. PM4SD aims to become the internationally recognised methodology to use tourism as a force for social, economic and cultural change, supporting the delivery of successful projects in a way that ensures benefits for everyone: visitors, local communities and stakeholders alike. The first training courses in PM4SD were launched in 2013, and certificates have been awarded at PM4SD foundation level to almost 100 professionals from 15 countries representing different types of organisations, such as national and local governments, international organisations, academies, tour operators and consultancy companies. The Foundation for European Sustainable Tourism (FEST) is in charge of maintaining and disseminating the methodology worldwide.
