APCC Special Report on tourism and climate change

The consequences of climate change are already being felt today. The APCC Special Report „Tourism and Climate Change in Austria“ (SR19) is a comprehensive summary and assessment of the current state of research on the complex relationships between tourism, events and climate change. In its nature as an assessment report, SR19 is the second Special Report on climate change in Austria.

Tourism in Austria is of particular economic importance. Therefore, the detailed consideration of climate change impacts is highly relevant. The Tourism Report provides a comprehensive insight into the topic and includes not only scientific findings but also the contributions of stakeholders (from two expert workshops). The results are summarised in a way that addresses policy makers, tourists and the industry.

The Journal of Outdoor Recreation and Tourism publishes a special issue on the APCC Special Report Tourism and Climate Change in Austria (SR Tourism). Core aspects of the report are dealt with in individual papers, placed in an international context and the practical relevance is presented.
