Title: Climate variability and climate change: implications for tourism
Author: Becken, Susanne
Hendrikx, Jordy
Date: 10-Nov-2010
Publisher: Lincoln University. LEaP.
Item Type: Oral Presentation
Abstract: Tourism often depends on the weather for participation, satisfaction, safety, and business viability. Tourism also depends on natural resources and environmental attractions. Climate models predict increasing temperatures, changing intensity and distribution of rainfall, decreased snow cover, and sea level rise. The tourism industry needs to plan proactively and adapt to variability and change.
Description: The Northland case study currently focuses on the development of a Visitor Incident Plan (VIP) to address natural disasters, based on the Civil Defence and Emergency Management Framework for the 4Rs: Risk reduction, readiness, response and recovery. This is the first attempt in New Zealand to systematically link tourism with disaster risk reduction. This is an oral presentation made in Paihia in November 2010.
