In recent years, global environmental change has become perceptible in many regions of the world and affects the very foundations of tourism and travel. The first part of the book is devoted to an in-depth study of the effects of global environmental change for tourism in different environments, including polar regions, mountains, lakes/streams, forests, costal zones, deserts, and urban environments. The second part looks at some specific global aspects of environmental change affecting tourism, such as the spread of diseases in changing climates, the availability of water resources, and extreme weather events. It can be assumed that these developments will have concomitant detrimental consequences for the tourist industry as well as for tourists themselves. The third section will thus look at stakeholder perceptions of global environmental change. In particular, the perceptions of tourists, tourist industry and policy makers will be highlighted. Finally, a fourth section will look at adaptation. Contributions will seek to discuss the options of restructuring the tourist industry in a changing world.
