Impacts of climate change on tourist destinations
Climate change has come to the fore as a global issue, threatening the livelihood of the human being. The brunt of climate change is vividly presented by a series of events in various parts of the earth. Tourism destinations, which largely rely on the beauty of nature as a way of enticing tourist demand, are inescapable from the effect of climate change. For example, in the Arctic, the pace of temperature increase is twice as faster than that of non-Arctic regions, wearing off the food chain feeding polar bears. This panel is to stroke scholarly discourses on the resilience and adaptation strategies coping with crisis from climate disasters through case discussions transpiring in California, Queensland, and Nordic regions.
