Risklayer serves as the official climate risk data partner of the Tourism Panel on Climate Change (TPCC) (tpcc.info), which is dedicated to advancing science-based climate action across the global tourism system in alignment with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
The tourism sector faces escalating exposure to climate hazards and their impacts, but evidence and coordinated climate adaptation efforts remain limited. A crucial foundation for effective climate change adaptation lies in comprehensively understanding how climate hazards affect tourism operations, infrastructure, natural and cultural assets, and demands analysis at the destination level.
Risklayer has conducted a comprehensive multi-hazard analysis of climate-related threats to tourist operators and destinations. This analysis includes data on various hazards such as wildfires, droughts, extreme precipitation, snow and cold events, heatwaves, thermal comfort, sea-level rise, ocean salinity, and acidification. The results of this analysis have been incorporated into the TPCC Stocktake Report, which will be released during COP28 in November 2023 at Expo City, Dubai.
