Description

In this study, an attempt is made to estimate the economic impact of climate change on the tourism sector
in the (former) Netherlands Antilles. There are three main objectives in this study. The first is to
examine the factors that influence the demand and supply of tourism in Netherlands Antilles. The second
is to forecast the cost of climate change to the tourism sector until 2050 under the A2 and B2 climate
scenarios with the (Business as Usual) as a comparator climate scenario, and the third is to estimate the
cost of adaptation and mitigation strategies that can be undertaken by the tourism sector in the
Netherlands Antilles to address climate change.
