“Climate Change and Tourism – Responding to Global Challenges”

The Report on “Climate Change and Tourism – Responding to Global Challenges” that was commissioned to an international team of experts by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), provides a synthesis of the state of knowledge about current and likely future impacts of climate change on tourism destinations around the world, possible implications for tourist demand, current levels and trends in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the tourism sector. It gives an overview of policy and management responses of adaptation to climate change and mitigation of tourism’s emissions. The Report also summarizes the main results of a series of events focused on climate change and tourism, which took place in the second of half of 2007.

This article is quoted from the web-page United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) by Majbritt Thomsen, administrator on ‘Views On Tourism’.
