Policy-makers’ perceptions of the tourism–climate change nexus: Policy needs and constraints in Botswana
By Wame L Hambira & Jarkko Saarinen
Climate change policy is important in guiding response actions in curbing the effects of climate change. Many developing countries are at a stage of formulating general climate change policies and are yet to make them sector specific. The tourism sector in particular is lagging behind compared with other sectors, such as agriculture, energy and water, which have received more attention.
The study has shown that the tourism sector should be looked closely when responding to climate change. Even though this study confined itself to the public policy makers , t suggests that research and focus must be extended to other categories such as development policy makers, community based organisations and the private sector as they play a crucial role.
