Sailing into troubled waters

Cruise tourism in India has been increasing multifold from 138 ships and 1.76 lakh passengers in 2017-18 to an estimated 580 ships with 5.65 lakh passengers in 2019-20. But cruises are notorious for their heavy environmental and social costs and limited economic benefits.

This webinar aims to start this conversation with international cruise tourism experts along with Indian environmentalists and social researchers, to understand what does the entry of international cruising mean for India?
