Low Carbon Tourism Planning and Development
Improving resilience to climate change has become a priority for many destinations due to coastal erosion, damage to infrastructure and property, as well as risk to human life and health. Travel and tourism is unique, in that it cross-cuts multiple sectors which impact our climate, including the energy, transportation, water, construction, health, and agricultural sectors. This affords leaders a unique opportunity to address climate change through an intergrated, holistic approach.
