An investigation and appreciation of these issues is necessarily the first stage in moving towards more sustainable local tourism management.

STCRC commissioned the development of a research agenda in January 2009 with the following aims: to map the process for increasing our understanding of fresh water as an input in the production of tourism outputsto illustrate the modelling required to establish the trade-offs and complementarities between the use of water for the production of tourism versus other outputs (e.g. agriculture, urban/industrial, environmental) to test and explore the range of policy and institutional responses that would be required to deliver an optimal allocation between competing water demands—including those arising from activities related to tourism.

The threat of climate change to prosperity in one country cannot be removed by the actions of that country alone. Effective action to moderate the risks of human-induced climate change requires large contributions to reductions in emissions from all major countries, and substantial contributions from the rest of the world as well. As a result, the search for effective climate change policy is partly a search for effective cooperation amongst countries of a kind and dimension that has never previously been known. This paper discusses that search for an international basis for effective climate change policy.
