Water Scarcity

According to a new global analysis published in the journal Science Advances this month, water shortage is one of the biggest challenges facing humanity today.

The results are fascinating and the causes are clear. Continuing population growth coupled with increasing food demand is stretching water limits around the world.

It was also interesting how rising incomes have been leading to a change in diets where people are tending to eat meat more regularly.

This booklet is an industry summary of the full report Impact of Bushfires on Tourism and Visitation in Alpine National Parks, containing references, methodology and detailed findings from the two phases of the project.  This project explored the impact of bushfires on tourism in Victoria’s Alpine National Parks and adjacent areas, and examined the profiles and views of visitors choosing whether or not to visit these areas following the most recent period of wildfire in 2006/07, in order to determine changes in visitor patterns and behaviour.

Bushfires are a recurring management issue for Australian parks and their impact on tourism needs to be understood in order to develop appropriate strategic responses. This project explored the impact of bushfires on tourism in Victoria’s Alpine National Parks and adjacent areas, and examined the profiles and views of visitors choosing whether or not to visit these areas following the most recent period of wildfire in 2006/07, in order to determine changes in visitor patterns and behaviour. STCRC has also prepared an industry summary for this technical report: Tourism Recovery.

The introduction of a minimal impact bushwalking (MIB) education campaign has alerted walkers to preferred behavioural practices in natural environments. However, despite the introduction of this campaign in Tasmania in 1987, there are still issues relating to visitor impact in back-country environments. The impact of visitors on the natural environment is often measured in terms of vegetation loss or track erosion. Impacts dealing with water quality issues have also been researched to a lesser degree. However, despite the visual impact of  inadequately buried human faeces at campsites, there has been very little work done on the extent of this problem, and on associated health risks.

This study was undertaken as a scoping study for future research into long haul flight issues and to complement the existing forecasting models and the scenario building that is currently underway with respect to Australia’s future tourism directions.
