Tourists asked to be "responsible" travellersListen /
Tourists can fight the trade in illicit goods by behaving as responsible travellers, according to the UN.
The World Tourism Organization (WTO) estimates that each year a billion people travel and face choices about buying illegal products.
Kevin Town from UNODC says the campaign which is called "Your actions count – be a responsible traveller" is aimed at educating tourists.
"The more that people find out about the situation on a local level or at a regional or global level and take that on board before they travel, the more they will be encouraged to be a responsible traveller." (11″)
The campaign focuses on five areas of illicit trafficking; counterfeit goods, the trafficking of cultural artefacts, illicit drugs, human trafficking and wildlife crime.
