A global review of the travel and tourism sector with regards to climate change has been set to take place in preparation for COP 28
The 24 key results of the Tourism Panel on Climate Change (TPCC) were established to help decision-makers and the tourism sector escalate their preparation and investments into a global tourism industry that is low carbon and climate-resistant. It is clear that numerous nations embrace tourism because of its essential part in advancing economic growth. A collaboration and initiation between TPCC and World Tourism Network (WTN) were disclosed at TIME 2023, the international travel summit facilitated by WTN which took place in Bali in September 2023. There appears to be an insufficient amount of proof suggesting that tourism increasing does not lead to a rise in greenhouse gas emissions. Vacationing and sightseeing activities are now responsible for roughly 8-10% of the total carbon emissions around the world. In 2023, an unparalleled series of climate milestones were achieved, demonstrating the impact of climate change on the tourism industry and beyond. Professor Daniel Scott from the University of Waterloo, Canada commented on this phenomenon. It is up to us as a collective to bring about transformation to climate-resilient tourism, and the tourism industry must take the lead on this. The destiny of international travel is up to us to determine, since we can’t guarantee its sustainability if we continue to neglect the effects of climate change.
