What is Adaptur?

ADAPTUR (Ecosystem-based adaptation to climate change in the tourism sector) was implemented in six tourist destinations in Mexico between 2017 and 2023. We formed a strategic alliance with key actors from the public, private, social and academic sectors at the national and subnational levels.

Today, it is a methodology aimed at reducing the risks of tourism by protecting its natural capital and ecosystem services, through the implementation of ecosystem-based adaptation measures (EbA), applicable in any tourist destination in the world.

Legislative initiatives
on sustainable tourism and climate change arose from joint work with local congresses.
National and subnational policies
have a vision of climate change, EbA and protection of biodiversity.
EbA measures were implemented
to ensure water in semi-desert cities and to protect the infrastructure and local population in the coasts.

Tourism-real estate entrepreneurs and developers
now have technical knowledge for decision-making during their investment process.


Key actors
from the government, the private sector, civil society, media and academia now have the technical knowledge to integrate and communicate EbA in tourist destinations.
