Integrated Climate Change Adaptation Strategies

CREST - Marine Tourism, Climate Change, and Resilience in the Caribbean, Volume I - Ocean Health, Fisheries, and Marine Protected Areas

The idea for this volume on marine tourism, and its three companion volumes, grew out of the 2015 “Innovators Think Tank: Climate Change and Coastal & Marine Tourism,” held in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, July 22–24, 2015. Organized and hosted by the Center for Responsible Travel (CREST) and the Grupo Puntacana Foundation, the Think Tank brought together some 35 sustainable tourism practitioners and climate change experts to take stock of how coastal and marine tourism in the Caribbean are dealing with climate change and its impacts, and to identify priorities that need to be addressed. Our discussions, ably facilitated by Roger-Mark De Souza of the Woodrow Wilson Center, were organized around a single critical theme: How coastal and marine tourism must be planned, built, and operated in this era of climate change.
