Economy and Employment

Action on climate change has the potential to create jobs. Resources and tools are becoming more available to help businesses and individuals become more energy-efficient and accelerate the shift to a low-carbon society. Weather can greatly affect tourism, and especially for the ‎beach, nature and winter ‎sport tourism segments. Changing climate and ‎weather patterns at tourist destinations and ‎tourist-orientated communities can significantly affect the touristsí comfort and their travel ‎decisions. ‎Changing demand patterns and tourist flows will have an impact on businesses ‎and on host communities, as well as effects on ‎related sectors, such as agriculture, ‎restaurants and hospitality sectors, arts and culture, and construction.
