Featured Resource

CAB International (CABI) Database

Travel and tourism is one of the world’s largest industries, representing 9% of total global GDP, 5% of world exports, and supporting one in eleven of all the world's jobs. Travel and tourism is a vital component of economic development and poverty reduction in many of the worlds’ poorest countries.

Since the 1970s, CABI has been covering the global literature in travel, tourism, leisure, recreation, sport, hospitality and culture. CABI offers unique resources supporting research and learning. We collate information not just from specialist journals and books in the leisure and tourism fields, but also all relevant material from CABI’s wider coverage in rural development, health, economics and the environment.
