Tourism, Gender and Climate Change


A short introductory reading from the GenderCC Women for Climate Justice website that summarizes gender dimensions of tourism and climate change. This reading is part of a larger study on the gender dimensions of climate change in several sectors such as agriculture, biodiversity, consumption, disaster, energy, forests, health, migration, population, tourism, transport, waste and water. The reading specifically discusses the differences in contributions of men and women in the travel and tourism industry- a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.

Students will learn about the link between the tourism industry, gender and climate change. They will also learn about gender differences in transport use and access to mobility.
