From 30 November to 11 December 2015, France will host and preside over the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21).

This Side Event aims to examine the global tourism sector’s contributions and responsibilities to the international climate and sustainable development agenda.  The tourism sector is one of the most important contributors to climate change and at the same time is one of the most dependent on fossil fuel energy. Many tourism operators, destinations and institutions have developed and/or used carbon measurement tools and are making tangible commitments to lowering their carbon emissions.

The primary objective of the Side Event is to facilitate exchange between the representatives of the global tourism sector (e.g. accommodations, restaurants, destinations, tour operators and others) and to recommend actions for low carbon tourism development.

For security reasons, the agenda of the low carbon tourism COP side event had to be updated.
