Climate change hotspots in the tourism sector
This chapter takes a somewhat different approach to hotspots than other contributions in this book. Focusing on the tourism sector, it considers: how multiple social and environmental factors combine to create hotspots; how these will influence the industry; and what responses are possible. South East Queensland (SEQ) is a major tourism destination, as well as a hotspot for climate change. It can learn from other destinations worldwide where the same combination applies; and equally, its experiences are applicable elsewhere. This chapter therefore examines several such locations, exploring how climate change is causing concern for tourism., and what responses are under development.
