Climate change and tourism in Germany

Climate change and tourism in Germany

The following project identifies the impacts of climate change on the tourism sector in Germany and possible adaptation mechanisms. This implies the analysis of existing climatic data, a vulnerability assessment and collection of adaptation options as well as the strong involvement of relevant stakeholders in order to achieve sustainable tourism in changing climatic conditions in the future.

The key questions of the project were:

  • What are the impacts of regional changes in climate on tourism destinations in Germany and to what extent these destinations will be impacted by these changes?
  • Which adaptation measures are relevant for the tourism sector and how can these measures be evaluated taking into account ecologic and economic criteria?
  • To which extent do existing funding options support the implementation of climate change adaptation measures?

FT covered the following tasks:

  • Project coordination and management
  • Organisation of stakeholder workshops incl. final conference
  • Development of guidelines for the tourism sector on how to adapt
  • Elaboration of possible funding programs for adaptation measures incl. recommendations
  • Press relations
  • Preparation of brochures and maintenance of project website

In addition FT gave a presentation at the digital networking forum „Nachhaltigkeit im Deutschlandtourismus: Wohin geht die Reise?“ on 22. September. 2021. See the key messages below:
