IPCC published the third part of its assessment on climate change including guidelines for the development of sustainable infrastructures, transport, and services which are the core of the tourism system.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change.
The IPCC prepares comprehensive Assessment Reports about the state of scientific, technical and socio-economic knowledge on climate change, its impacts and future risks, and options for reducing the rate at which climate change is taking place. It also produces Special Reports on topics agreed to by its member governments, as well as Methodology Reports that provide guidelines for the preparation of greenhouse gas inventories. The IPCC is working on the Sixth Assessment Report which consists of three Working Group contributions and a Synthesis Report.
As Skal members, entrepreneurs, and managers, we do have our share of responsibility in making sure about the sustainability of our activities. Skal International is committed to promoting sustainable tourism including the necessary actions that need to be taken to mitigate climate change.
The previous reports were published in 2021 and the beginning of 2022 and cover the following areas:
- Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis
- Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability
The latest document produced by IPCC is an updated global assessment of climate change mitigation progress and pledges and examines the sources of global emissions. It explains developments in emission reduction and mitigation efforts, assessing the impact of national climate pledges in relation to long-term emissions goals.
