York INTRODUCTION Human-induced climate change presents one of the greatest managerial challenges of our time (George et al., 2016; Howard-Grenville et al., 2014).

15 Tourism and climate change Robert Steiger Introduction Climate change is an important macro-scale factor changing the availability and quality of natural resources, affecting economic development and increasing regional disparities. Given tourism’s strong dependence on natural resources such as weather and climate, biodiversity or pristine landscape, it is clear that climate change has the potential to both negatively and positively influence this economic sector (Scott et al. 2012).

23  Climate change refugees Fanny Thornton INTRODUCTION The known and anticipated impacts of anthropogenic climate change upon the environment, natural resources, human livelihoods and other factors seemingly provide a compelling background by which also to reflect on the capacity of environmental factors to compel or contribute to people on the move – possibly on a notable scale (IPCC 2014). What is clear is that people movement in the context of anthropogenic climate change is a complex topic. It is not necessarily linear in the sense of event ‘x’ leading to

This book focuses on the underlying concepts that are of concern to researchers, students and policymakers rather than on the details of national legislation. The core topics include the difficulty of
