Climate change & its impact on tourism sector

Published on : Monday, November 6, 2017

indexTo quote Mr. MacGregor, International tourism consultant as informed to eTN: “I have shifted my focus from sustainable tourism and even low carbon tourism towards implementation of those adaptive techniques that will reduce the impacts of global warming on destinations including urban heat islands, rising sea levels, hurricanes and flooding, loss of biodiversity and other factors that will significantly impact the tourism industry.”

It’s crucial to understand that rapidly increasing CO2 levels and following global warming are more or less “locked in” in for the upcoming seventy years.

To be more precise, all initiations by the travel sector to decrease CO2 will have a very marginal impact though.

The main concern lies in preparing for the unavoidable impacts of tourism as a result of rapidly heating planet.

International researchers discussing in evaluating the effects of climate change wrapped up a 3-day conference on the alarming issue this week. The conference took place in Solo City, Central Java, Indonesia. It was organized by the Universitas Sebelas Maret in partnership with universities in Germany, Japan and Malaysia.

To quote conference organizer, Dr. Komariah, recognized this second International Conference on Climate Change, (ICCC) as: “both an opportunity to bring together the results of advanced international research but also as an opportunity for our graduate students to present their research findings”.

The presentations of the study on the effects of global warming related to several industries like tourism, agriculture, and forestry.

International sustainable tourism consultant, James MacGregor, from Morocco, highlighted the effects of significant rise in temperatures in significant urban tourism destinations along with the rising sea levels and flooding on coastal tourism zones.
