CLIMAR explained in less than 3 minutes

Tourism and Climate Change have a challenging relationship.

On one hand, the tourism sector is a big contributor to climate change: from air transport emissions to over exploitation of natural resources… it is estimated that the sector is responsible for 8% of all global greenhouse gas emissions.

On the other hand, climate change negatively affects the tourism industry. The rising of the sea levels, the erosion of beaches or extreme meteorological events are endangering the sustainability of the tourism industry. Particularly in the regions that are socioeconomically dependent on it.

That’s why it is essential to prepare the tourist sector to best face climate change and to mitigate its impacts, which is what CLIMAR works for. Learn all about the project in less than 3 minuts by watching the video below.
