Description:

Carbon offsetting as part of tourism operators' strategy to mitigate climate change. An analysis of attitudes, preferences and needs of tour operators based on a case study from Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

This study is undertaken with the background that tourism is an active contributor to the man-made climate change and is also vulnerable to impacts of climate change. Apart from climate adaptation measures, the tourism industry needs to develop mitigation strategies to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. Tour operators play the key role in climate protection measures in the tourism industry but may also face significant challenges due to climate change. This paper focuses on carbon offsetting as one tool of tour operators' climate protection activities.
