A new online resource has been developed by SWCCIP, in partnership with South West Tourism, Climate South East and Tourism South East and South West Tourism, to assist forward-looking businesses prepare for the effects of climate change. In tough economic times many are already looking to reduce the future risks to their business, make the most of emerging opportunities and keep ahead of the game as the economic outlook improves.
The toolkit, ‘Preparing for change: climate-proof your tourism business’ is structured around the impacts of floods, droughts and heatwaves – extreme weather events that are becoming more frequent and intense as the climate changes. Each section tells how businesses might be affected, suggests practical actions to take, and guides to further information and support. The site also includes case studies, top tips and an interactive checklist, which enables users to create their own personalised action plan. The toolkit is now live and can be accessed at: http://www.climateprepared.com.
