Appendix26 (1)

  1. 1. Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the Tourism Sector: Frameworks, Tools and PracticesTopics for case studies or concept papers.TOPIC 1 (5-7 case studies or concept papers)Engaging stakeholders in an adaptation process The case of (country name) A preliminary plan for (country name)If you choose a case study, please explain the process that your country/institution/organization hasfollowed in order to build a local, national or regional partnership responsible for implementing anadaptation plan. List the stakeholders that you have chosen and explain how you selected them, therole of the leading partner and the “decision-making rules” regulating the partnership. List anyproblems that have occurred and, where possible, focus on cases involving a degree of conflict. Forsuch cases explain how the conflict was resolved or, if the conflict was not resolved, why a resolutionwas not possible. List the main lessons learned and how these lessons could be used by otherdestinations.If you choose a concept paper, please explain how you plan to build a local, national or regionalpartnership responsible for the implementation of an adaptation plan. List the stakeholders that youconsider should be invited and the reasons for inviting them, state how you plan to manage thepartnership and what decision-making rules you think are the most appropriate for the partnership.How do you anticipate confronting problems and resolving conflicts? What kind of assistance you willneed to build the partnership. What you would recommend to a “senior executive” of your organizationor institution?TOPIC 2 (5-7 cases studies or concept papers)Assessing impacts and evaluating risks e.g. • Sea level rise in (country name) • Water shortage in (country name) • Threats for wildlife in (country name) • Natural disasters in (country name) • Coastal erosion in (country name)Select one of the above climate change impacts (or propose others) for your destination and explainthe potential implications for tourism. If your country has already undertaken an assessment thenpresent the results of this assessment; otherwise attempt a preliminary assessment of the impacts toyour country. What kind of data have you used or are you planning to use? List the risks associatedwith the impact and evaluate the severity of each risk. Do not forget that you should list and assessboth current and potential impacts. 1
  2. 2. TOPIC 3 (5-7 case studies or concept papers)Mitigation: The response of the tourism sector The case of (segment) in (name of destination) An integrated approach for (name of destination)If you select this topic then you should select either one particular segment of the tourism sector (e.g.transportation, accommodation, or activity-based segment) or a combination of segments in a givendestination.If you are presenting a case study then you should explain what kind of concrete mitigation measureshave been undertaken. Give as much information as possible on the technologies and solutions usedand the associated costs. Do not forget to mention any problems that might have occurred.If you are presenting a concept paper then list the mitigation options that you think are relevant foryour destination/segment. Explain why you believe these measures are adequate for your destination/segment and anticipate the implementation challenges that your destination/ segment will have toconfront.TOPIC 4 (3-5 concept papers or case studies)Sectoral relationships e.g.: • Agriculture • Waste management • Water • Infrastructure • etc.The focus of this topic is on the sectoral relationship between sustainable destinations, tourism andclimate change. We are looking for papers that will explain with simple language the economicdependences between tourism and other economic sectors and how these dependences are affectingthe climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts of a destination. Although the main focus is on theeconomic dependences, the societal and political dynamics driven by these dependencies should alsobe presented.These contributions are expected to be more concept papers rather than case studies although acombination of a concept paper with some examples would be ideal.TOPIC 5 (5-7 case studies or concept papers)Confronting challenges Financing adaptation and mitigation in (name of country) Raising awareness on tourism and climate change in (name of country) Developing an enabling political framework Free subject selection (you should select your subject before leaving Oxford)If you choose a case study then similar to the previous topics you should explain the activity that youare undertaking. If this is a concept paper you should explain how you plan to develop and implementactivities to confront the challenges. If you choose financing then you should either explain how youmanaged to secure financing or how you plan to develop a financing plan. 2
