Climate change impact on the tourism sector in the southern mediterranean
This study assesses the effects of climate change on the tourism sector across the southern Mediterranean countries and evaluates relevant policy measures addressing these challenges for the region. Tourism is an essential sector for the economy of these countries and it has a huge potential for growth and impact on job creation, development of sustainable infrastructures and understanding of how turning Climate Change issues into adaptation opportunities across the Mediterranean. The sector is nevertheless still facing a number of policy challenges that, to be fully addressed, require further action by all stakeholders at different levels of governance across institutions, research centres, operators and the civil society at large.
