Critical Acclaim
‘Climate change is a major challenge to the capacity of tourism to contribute positively to biodiversity conservation and the social and economic well-being of nature-based tourism destinations. This Handbook provides welcome insights not only into the challenge of climate change and the vulnerability of destinations but also the means by which destinations and tourism businesses can adapt and continue to contribute to conservation. The book provides valuable reading for anyone interested in this topic.’
