The latest edition of the UNWTO newsletter is now available online; this month, we're informed of upcoming events and details of new reports as well as a special story on tourism in the Gambia.

Here's a tourism fact from UNWTO:
Africa has been one of the fastest growing tourism regions in the world. In the first eight months of 2012, international tourists to Africa increased by 6%, way above the global average of 4%. UNWTO expects international tourist arrivals to the region to more than double by 2030 to reach 134 million up from the current 50 million.
