Equality Impact Assessment for Ireland Wales Outdoor Tourism Project
Catalys was commissioned to undertake an Equality Impact Assessment for the INTERREG IVA funded Outdoor Tourism Project. The project involved desk research which revealed that this is a relatively under researched area and would benefit from greater attention. The project also involved consultation with project partners and stakeholders, representing both the providers and users. The project produced an Equality Impact Assessment for the project, an Action Plan for its implementation, as well as a monitoring tool.
“The primary purpose of the outputs from this study is to inform policy and influence a new approach to equality within the Outdoor Tourism sector. The report will inform the subsequent authorities and agencies involved in providing and promoting outdoor tourism in the Irish and Welsh context.”
