European Commission Directorate-General for Regional and Urban PolicyEuropean Commission Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy

The tourist sector is vital to the economy in many European regions and it one of the sectors mostly heavily affected by COVID-19, both in the short-term and in the medium to long-term.
This study assesses how various types of tourist regions are affected by COVID-19 and what future developments in the tourism sector might bring for them. The study combines the territorial diversity and economic importance of the tourism sector (and its prospective) with the territorial diverse impacts of COVID19 and policy responses to the pandemic and recovery measures.
There is also a time dimension to it, as the impacts of their territoriality differ between what we have seen during spring 2020 (lockdown phase), summer/winter 2020 (holiday season with travel restrictions) and what expect to see in the short-term (2021/2) and medium term (post 2022).
The aim of the study is to help developing and fine-tuning policy responses addressing problems in the sector in general and specific to various types of tourist region.
The study is led by Spatial Foresight GmbH, with t33 contributions.
