چکیده:

In many destinations, tourism is closely linked with the natural environment. Climate affects a wide range of the environmental resources that are critical attractions for tourism, such as snowconditions, wildlife productivity, biodiversity, water supply and the length and quality of tourism seasons. Climate also has an important influence on environmental conditions than can deter tourists, including infectious disease, bushfires, insect, water-borne pests and extreme weather events such as tropical cyclones. With climate, a number of researchers have lamented that thevulnerability of individual tourism industries and tourism destinations to climate variability has not been adequately assessed. Butler and Jones in 2001 indicated that Climate change could havegreater effect on tomorrow’s world and tourism and hospitality in particular than anything else we have discussed .The most worrying aspect is that to all intents and purposes the tourism and hospitality industries seem intent on ignoring what could be the major problem of the century (original emphasis). Now a day, a broad range of potential climate change impact on the tourism sector was identified. This paper indicates the consequences of climate change for tourism within the context of existing knowledge about the relationship between tourism and climate and weather. The importance of local-regional scale climate analysis for tourism is presented. It also provides a brief overview of recent advances in our understanding of global climate change
