Abstract There is plenty of evidence that tourism stakeholders, as well as tourists, are increasingly becoming aware of the challenges that climate change is posing on the sector. This chapter presents a number of case studies that illustrate tangible progress both in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changes in climatic or environmental conditions. The examples discussed in this chapter highlight initiatives at the policy level, and practical implementations. Learning at both of these levels is seen as the major next step in making a difference for tourism to successfully address climate change. Key points extracted from the case studies include the need to avoid “unsustainable” tourism development, the importance to include carbon management as an integral part of business practice and the benefits of taking a risk-management approach to tourism (at various levels).
