Responding to climate change: tourism initiatives in Asia and the Pacific explores the general causes and effects of climate change on tourism at a global and regional level.

Presenting specific case studies from Asia and the Pacific, the publication examines tourism´s contribution to greenhouse gas emissions, ultimately calling for greater mitigation and adaptation measures from the public and private sector. The study concludes that the socio-economic impacts of climate change on tourism require greater vigilance and further research to ensure the sector´s long-term sustainability and its effective contribution to the great challenge of climate change.
