ASIA Pacific Journal of Tourism Research

 Assessing impacts and building resilience: The implications of climate change on tourism in the Asia Pacific region

Climate Change is an issue that has attracted considerable negative press recently but is it an issue that will go away?  How informed are academics and destinations on the climate related issues that we may face in the future?

The manner in which the public sector, industry and consumers respond to the challenges associated with climate change will influence investment decisions and may determine the long term sustainability of many destinations. Recently the tourism literature has begun to debate the potential impacts of climate change but many gaps remain. In particular there is a significant gap in our understanding of how tourists will respond and what adaptation strategies the tourism industry may need to adopt. Given the growing demand for tourism activities within the Asia Pacific region there is an urgent need to expand our understanding of these issues. Issues of primary concern include adaptation, community resilience, behavioural tipping points and consumer responses

The objectives of this special issue are to focus attention on the impacts and vulnerability of the Asia Pacific region to climate change and to address the question of how nations and destinations may respond and build resilience. Possible topics might include, but not limited to:


  • Behavioural studies that examine touristís responses to climate change
  • Case studies that look at the present and future impact of climate change on specific destinations
  • The adaptive capacity and resilience of the tourism industry to climate change impacts
  • Implication for the tourism industry of the failure of the 2009 Copenhagen Summit to achieve international targets for greenhouse emissions
  • The impact of Emission Trading Schemes on national tourism industries
  • Measuring behavioural tipping points
  • Tourist attitude to climate change
  • Measuring carbon footprints
  • Impact of climate change on specific ecosystems
  • The effectiveness of calls for voluntary measures to reduce carbon output
  • The potential impact of climate change on coastal destinations
  • The potential for reduced long haul travel
  • The potential for offsetting carbon emissions
  • Ethical, justice and/or legal issues surrounding climate change impacts
  • Impact on transport systems and supporting technology
  • Planning models
