The World Symposium on Climate Change and Tourism is being organized by the International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCIP) in cooperation with a set of partner organisations. The event will focus on the impacts of climate change to the tourism industry and will discuss possible responses in order to reduce its vulnerability.
Those working on the travel and tourism industry need access to information that enables them to better understand, anticipate, and take the action needed to cope with the many threats that climate change poses to this sector. Cities which depend on tourism as sources of income on the one hand, but also tourism organisations and operators on the other, need to closely work with businesses, as well as government agencies and the scientific community, so that they are fully able to handle the various hazards associated with climate change, and which may negatively influence the tourism sector.
Consistent with the need for more cross-sectoral interactions among the various stakeholders working in the field of relief planning and management, the aims of the World Symposium on Climate Change and Tourism are as follows:
Last but not least, a further aim of the event will be to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences available today. To this purpose, the “Handbook of Climate Change and Tourism: Implementing Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Measures in the Tourism Sector” will be published, with all accepted papers. This will be a further volume of the award-winning Climate Change Management book series published by Springer, which since its creation in 2009 has become the world´s leading book series on applied sustainable development. The decision of the editors as to which papers may be selected and undergo peer review for the book is final.
