Voluntary tax THE GOVERNMENT Government issues: 160 islands - 60-70% of projects did not move History of the Government:
bad governing issues MULTINATIONALS Hotels The Banyan Trees & Angsana: Green Fund In the next 5 Years: To implement a Marine Reserve Electricity needs 60% covered with solar power and combination of bio-fuels & other clean technologies & some conventional energy For the sake of our children, our future generations, we must protect and nuture the earth. To do that we must use the best of science and technology but remain grounded in the collective wisdom of our people, both ancient and modern. Development policy must address the need for economic development. It is my hope that world governments will seize the moment to create a new paradigm for sustainable development.

in the Maldives The Taj Exotica Hotel reducing the amount of energy it uses Learning Outcomes Let's conclude this presentation with a POP QUIZ. Tick the box if you achieved an understanding in that area: I understand what is climate change and its significance in tourism.

I find out more about tourism in Maldives in terms of its facts, offerings to tourists and key tourists that visit the Maldives.

I learn how to apply theories on the subject eg Butler's & Leiper's

I learn about the impacts of climate change on tourism at Maldives.

I understand the importance of the stakeholders in addressing the issue of climate change within tourism through adaptation and mitigation.

I understand the relationship between aviation, tourism and GHG emissions Can you list down some of the effects? Tourism: 5% of global emission
Aviation: 2% of tourism's global emission UNWTO stresses a global approach on this matter.
Statement Regarding Mitigation of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Air Passenger Transport Climate Refugee The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has been delegated by the Kyoto Protocol to be the principal body for dealing with international aviation emission The Maldives proposed to impose a levy on all international flights Carbon Intensity of Passenger Transport CO2 Emission by Plane Models Types of emission from aviation 3.
