The aim in this WP is the analysis of the impact of climate change on alpine tourism destinations. For alpine destinations, which are strongly affected by the aspects of climate change, it is important to identify adaptations options in strategy and product development. WP 5, which is based on data generated in WP 4 and previous studies (e.g. ClimChAlp), will support through the impact analysis WP 6 in the identificiation of such adaptation strategies. These strategies will enable alpine stakeholders to meet the challenges of climate change. Thereby the competitveness and attractivness of the Alpine Space in comparision to other destinations in Europe and worldwide will be enanced considerably.
An evaluation of the destination´s characteristics, product portfolio and vulnerability will be conducted for each pilot region, resp. data collection destination, in order to identify the impact of climate change. Key aspects are
- environmental analysis
- social analysis
- economical analysis
An environmental, social and economic analysis of the impacts of climate change on tourism destinations selected as pilot regions in WP 4. Analysis of current strategies of national and international stakeholders in order to validate the adaptation strategies in the pilot regions. Input for WP 6 and WP 7.
