Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Global climate change is a significant challenge facing society that will transform tourism worldwide. Whether society achieves rapid and deep emission reductions to restrict global warming to well below +2 °C (i.e., Paris Agreement) or the more extensive climate disruption of a warmer world is realized, climate change and our collective climate action will have significant implications for tourism. This Special Issue is dedicated to new research that responds to the imperative to improve our understanding of the tourism sector’s climate change risks and inform mitigation and adaptation responses that advance climate-resilient tourism development.
