An assessment of the economic impact of climate change on the tourism sector in the Bahamas
This study examines the direct and indirect impacts of climate change to the tourism sector on the islands of New Providence and adjacent Paradise Island in the Bahamas. The assessment was carried out by conducting a geospatial analysis of tourism establishments at risk using Geographic Information Systems GIS. We combined the geospatial analysis with publicly available databases to assess the integrated climate-related impacts pertaining to a Small Island Developing State SIDS economy. Considering the economic importance of the sector, the potential impacts on the tourism infrastructure will cause significant losses in revenue and employment for the two islands. Furthermore, the majority of the tourism on these islands is beach-based and visitor expenditures will decline due to their vulnerability.
Tourism: Change, Impacts and Opportunities
Wall, G. Tourism: change, impacts, and opportunities. Pearson Education. This research conducted to measure the level of the local community satisfaction from all economic and social impacts of tourism development. Among different factors of tourism development, the social and economic aspects of tourism considered as principal factors and their impacts on society measured. The economic aspect divided into five items and the social aspect divided into four items for examining factor loading. The result shows that the economic aspect of tourism development has the most substantial impact on local satisfaction than the social aspect of tourism.
