Tourism industry set to help combat climate change

Tourism industry set to help combat climate change
Tourism will ensure it is at the heart of global efforts to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change, an industry spokesman has claimed.

Acknowledging the contribution made by the industry, and aviation in particular, to climate change, the World Tourism Organisation's (WTO) secretary-general, Francesco Frangialli, also called for an end to "unfair" targeting of the sector's actions, the People's Daily reported.

He also highlighted the need for the industry to ensure it adhered at all times to emission reduction requirements resulting from the Kyoto Protocol, and any agreement that follows it.

"It is necessary to anticipate the developments that will take place in the travel, tourism and transport sector, to foster its adaptation, to diversify the products offered in order to make destinations less vulnerable, but also to limit such activities' contribution to the phenomenon of warming," Mr Frangialli said.

"Tourism contributes to global warming, but is at the same time a victim of such warming," he added.

Last week, several US states and environmental groups called on the country's government to adopt limits on carbon emissions from its aviation industry.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18391765-ADNFCR
