O knihe

Global tourism seriously contributes to the global climate warming with 5% of GHG emissions at present and 130% in 2035. The UNWTO's Davos Conference in 2007 emphasises mitigation of emissions and adaptation to climate change impacts by the tourism industry sectors as the strategies to combat tourism's carbon footprint (CFP). The problem arising here is whether the poor destination countries can feasibly meet the challenges of its first three recommendations. These can be regarded as the 'direct solution' and defensive. How to reduce the emissions from aviation and transportation which are the highest CFP producers of tourism while facilitating the industry's growth simultaneously has not been successfully addressed there. The author proposes here a complement to the Conference which can be regarded as the 'indirect solution' to be brought about via 'Climate-Justice (CliJ) Tourism Model'. It is compensative. The model's core strategy is the Climate Change Combating Initiatives which has to be implemented with participation of Disseminating Actors, Operating Actors, Sending Partners or/and Hosting Partners. The effectiveness of this model is regulated by structural limiting factors.
