Expert View: "Tourism is naturally a highly climate-sensitive industry, due to its close connections to the environment and climate itself. A changing climate presents both risks and opportunities for the sector. For example, countries in higher latitudes and altitudes may experience an increase in visitor popularity, as traditional tourism 'hotspots' become too hot or lack resources, such as water. Those businesses taking a pro-active approach to climate change adaptation are likely to gain significant competitive advantage."
