Climate change and tourism: Implications for South Africa
AbstractGlobal warming is a much debated issue. While many scientists regard the increase in global temperature a normal process, others argue that most of the observed increase in global temperature since the mid 20th century is very likely the result of human activities. Whatever the reason, scientists nevertheless agree that the world’s climate is changing and that these changes will have a profound effect on human activities. This article focuses on the relationship between climate and tourism, the likely effects of climate change on tourism in general, and highlights the projected impacts on South Africa. The planning implications of the expected impacts are also highlighted.
