Abstract

The subject of this paper is tourism policy, climate change and sustainable development. We consider climate change to be one of the biggest problems of modern living, and the tourism is one of the many sectors affected mainly through the changing faces of tourist destinations. After the climate change we observe reduced numbers of tourists in those tourist destinations. Tourism is the antithesis of bad weather and can be developed only in areas that are not affected by such conditions. For this reason, many countries are preparing in advance and plan their tourism policies to meet the climate change issues. In this paper, we define tourism policy, climate change and implications for tourism, contribution of tourism to climate change, and we give examples of tourism policies concerning climate change. Recommendations for the Republic of Macedonia are given based on international experience and how should the country and the tourism industry prepare for the global climate change.
