2nd International Conference on Tourism and Climate Change

Davos, Switzerland, 1-3 October 2007

The 2nd International Conference on Climate Change and Tourism will bring together international organizations, governments, public and private sector stakeholders in tourism and the academic community in order to review international processes and to discuss adaptation and mitigation needs and policy options. The event will examine the linkages between climate factors and tourism operations in their complexity, to draw conclusions and propose recommendations to all stakeholders involved. It is aimed at continuing and deepening the debate started in Djerba 2003, in the light of recent developments in the field, as well as benefiting from the latest report of the IPCC and the ongoing UNWTO-UNEP study on climate change and tourism.

The options open to the tourism sector for adaptation to climate changes will be discussed from a destination's perspective in three panel sessions: coastal destinations and small islands, mountain regions, and heritage sites.

Possibilities for mitigation will be discussed in three panel sessions: mitigation in the transport sector, mitigation in hotels and other tourism establishments, and mitigation of tourism's impact on the natural environment and strengthening the resilience of ecosystems.

The results of the conference will lead to the Davos Declaration, to be submitted to the Tourism Ministerial Summit on Climate Change, to be held in London, United Kingdom, on 13 November 2007, and to the UNWTO General Assembly (Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, November 2007).
