Synopsis

As UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has stated, "Climate change is the pre-eminent geopolitical and economic issue of the 21st century. It rewrites the global equation for development, peace and prosperity." The scientific evidence is clear - climate change is happening and the exposure to weather-related disasters such as heat waves, forest fires, cyclones and flooding has the potential to seriously impact the tourism sector. The travel and tourism industry is both a significant contributor to climate change, being responsible for 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and is directly impacted by it. At the same time, the industry is a vital driver of the global economy with an estimated US$6.6 trillion total contribution in 2012, and is particularly significant to developing and emerging economies where the impacts of climate change can be most disruptive. This collection of papers is a timely and indispensable source of insights and models of best practice relating to the mitigation of and adaptation to climate change by various sectors of the industry.

Louis D'Amore is the Founder and President of the International Institute for Peace through Tourism (IIPT). He has been instrumental in promoting the travel and tourism industry as the world's first "Global Peace Industry" since the founding of IIPT in 1986. His concept of "Peace through Tourism" includes the idea of "peace with nature," and, accordingly, he has been a pioneer in socially and environmentally responsible tourism since conducting the world's first comprehensive study on the future of tourism for the Canadian Government in the mid-'70s, and, subsequently in 1993, developing the world's first "Code of Ethics and Guidelines for Sustainable Tourism." Mr D'Amore is Chancellor of Livingstone International University of Tourism Excellence and Business Management (LIUTEBM) and recipient of the International Coalition of Tourism Partners' "Visionary Award." Dr Patrick Kalifungwa is the Vice Chancellor and Founder of Livingstone International University of Tourism Excellence and Business Management (LIUTEBM) . He spearheaded the establishment of the first tertiary Tourism University in Zambia. His motivation arose from his tour of duty as Minister of Tourism, Environment and Natural Resources. Dr Kalifungwa studied at Glamorgan University, in the United Kingdom, and American University, in the United States. He is the recipient of awards for the best Minister of Tourism and Africa Travel Association President, the International Socrates Award, the Best Enterprise Award and the Quality Management Award.
