Conference on Climate Change and Tourism Convenes October 1

The Second International Conference on Climate Change and Tourism will be held in Davos, Switzerland, October 1-3, 2007. The conference, which is being organized by the United Nations and supported by the World Economic Forum and the Swiss government, will focus on the relationship between climate and tourism. "We hope that the Davos Conference and the follow-up Ministerial Summit in London on November 13 will trigger research and policy measures that will enable tourism to respond to the challenges of climate change and at the same time reduce the industry's own contributions to global warming," wrote Geoffrey Lipman, UNTWO's assistant secretary-general, in a statement.
