Volltext/Document

In line with climate change, tourism is seen as more bane than boon. Tourism has become an important sector for some Southeast Asian countries, as this sector contributes much-needed income especially from international visitors. However, despite its contribution to the economy of some countries, tourism also leaves a negative impact on the environment. This paper identifies opportunities in the local, national, regional, and international level that can assist the tourist island cities of Denpasar, Bali (Indonesia) and Puerto Princesa, Palawan (Philippines) in pursuing low-carbon development. Recommendations for practical action on local levels and policy implementation on the national, regional, and international level are given.
