TOURISM WATCH was established in 1975 by the Church Development Service of the Protestant Church in Germany as a worldwide Special Desk for Tourism. Now it is part of Brot für die Welt in Berlin, Germany.
TOURISM WATCH is involved in training programmes and in solidarity initiatives surrounding the issue of "Third-World" tourism, and it promotes socially and environmentally responsible developments in tourism. Against a background of numerous negative consequences resulting from tourism, TOURISM WATCH questions the assumption that "tourism equals development".
