  • In 2015, the global community came together in Paris and agreed on a CO2 emissions pathway to avoid a temperature anomaly of more than 2 °C above pre-industrial levels
  • From research published by the UNWTO in 2008, this contribution to anthropogenic CO2 emissions was found to be significant at 4.9% in 2005 and to increase
  • The main research question of my thesis is: ‘Which mechanisms drive the development of global tourism and its CO2 emissions, and what are potential effects and consequences of policy strategies to mitigate these emissions?
