  17. 17. Tourism as a catalyst for Regional Climate Resilience? New Report: “Adapt Now: A Global Call for Leadership on Climate Resilience” “We face a crisis. Climate change is upon us, and its impacts are getting more severe with each passing year. Global actions to slow climate change are promising but insufficient. We must invest in a massive effort to adapt to conditions that are now inevitable: higher temperatures, rising seas, fiercer storms, more unpredictable rainfall, and more acidic oceans. We are not starting from a standstill. There are many bright spots where adaptation efforts have begun—but we need more urgency, innovation, and scale. Adaptation is not an alternative to a redoubled effort to stop climate change, but an essential complement to it. Failing to lead and act on adaptation will result in a huge economic and human toll, causing widespread increases in poverty and severely undermining long-term global economic prospects. The good news is that adaptation, done right, will lead to better growth and development. It will also save lives, protect nature, reduce inequalities, and create opportunities. We can do it!” - Global Centre for Adaptation Report, Sept. 10th, 2019 https://gca.org/global-commission-on-adaptation/report
  18. 18. Regional Regeneration creates win-win-win outcomes Elegant solutions adapted to the bio-cultural uniqueness of place Multi-capital nutrients: • Living Capital of Healthy Ecosystem / Biosphere • Human Capital of educated & skilled citizens • Manufactured Capital of existing infrastructure etc. • Social Capital of community cohesion / collaboration • Financial Capital (based on multiple types of currency) Enabling the potential for thriving together: • Participatory decision-making and governance • Supportive institutions (education, capacity building, health, etc) • Regenerative supply networks (no hidden externalities in supply chains) • Cross-sector collaboration (Public, Private, Civil Society & Fourth Sector) • Widespread stakeholder engagement in regional & planetary regeneration Regenerating conditions conducive to life: • Climate Change adaptation, mitigation & reversal • Conservation of existing biodiversity & eventual increase by re-wilding • Restoring health ecosystems functions (for utilitarian & intrinsic value) • Creating vibrant regional economies & right livelihood opportunities • Increasing ecological & social capital strengthens regional economy • Increasing regional capacity for renewable energy, regenerative food systems, water management & bioregional learning & innovation • Link between planetary, ecosystems, population & personal health enables wellbeing & thriving Regenerative practice results in: • People connecting with each other, place & planet • Building capacity for people in place to help themselves • Increased civic participation and social engagement • Regional economic multipliers increasing cost- effectiveness • Global impact through scaling-out (not up) through glocal approach • Increased personal & business accountability & response-ability • Transformative innovation creates elegant solutions adapted to the bio-cultural uniqueness of place • Increased community and regional resilience in the face of climate change and economic volatility (collapse) Outputs Inputs Regenerative Practice … … builds soil for flourishing places
