Abstract

This report is a summary of the scoping study The Impacts of Climate Change on Australian Tourism Destinations: developing adaptation and mitigation strategies which has been undertaken by Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre (STCRC). It highlights the findings of the scoping study which received additional funding support from the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism.

Climate change projections used as the basis for this report were prepared by agencies such as CSIRO and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and informed by the Garnaut Climate Change Review. STCRC has not undertaken any primary research on potential climate change projections. It is important to note that all of the tourism impacts from climate change contained in this report assume that the base projections will occur and that no new mitigation or adaptation strategies have been implemented.
