Summary/Abstract: In the 70s and 80s of the twentieth century tourism plays a minor role in the development of biodiversity. However, after the adoption of the strategic document „Agenda 21 “, а very tangible progress in this regard has been аchieved as sustainable tourism is included as one of the structurally important sectors in the economy. The Committee on Sustainable Development at the UN is mandated to develop an international action program, oriented towards effective work in the field of conservation and expansion of biodiversity. A lot of other organizations like the World Tourism Organization (WTO), United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and others have an active attitude to this international program.
