Phase 4: Implementation

In this phase it is important to take into account any foreign factors that may facilitate or hinder the development of adaptation actions to climate change.

In the process of modifying or creating a public tourism policy that includes adaptation to climate change, it is recommendable to cross-check the policy you wish to intervene with the climate change and biodiversity protection instruments that are already applied in the field. The objective of this strategy is to determine what the legal gaps that need to be addressed are and the modifications that must be made.

For tourism businesses, the next step is to implement the adaptation measures that could best help reduce their risks and increase their resilience, depending on what stage they are in. Some examples can be found in the ADAPTUR Methodology document.

Lessons learned

  • Success is undoubtedly the greatest motivator. It is important to achieve results quickly during the first stage of cooperation and to celebrate even small achievements with your project partners and target audience.
  • It is essential to keep stakeholders updated and interested during implementation (eg, through newsletters, good communication practices, intersectoral communication, workshops).
  • Adaptation is a journey. In other words, a dynamic process that requires flexibility and continuous adjustment according to social, environmental, political and economic conditions.
  • Helping local stakeholders use successful EbA solutions to promote their work, organization or business creates another incentive for participation and may motivate other stakeholders to join the project.
