Environmental Change Challenges for Aviation and Tourism Peter Forsyth Monash University ABARE Climate Change Workshop Canberra February 5, 2008

Slide 2

Themes: How environmental change sways on tourism, and how tourism sways on environmental change Issues emerging from the effect of environmental change moderation strategies on tourism

Slide 4

Outline Climate Change sways on Tourism sways on environmental change Aviation-particular angles Climate change approaches and their effects on tourism Issues Conclusions

Slide 5

Climate Change Impacts on Tourism depends vigorously on the regular habitat, particularly in Australia Change will mean characteristic attractions will be harmed, or even pulverized Great Barrier Reef; Kakadu; ski fields; shoreline ranges Impacts basically negative for Australian attractions-a couple could be sure A matter for case by case appraisal (STCRC study proposed) Other nations both progressively and less influenced Australia prone to miss out as far as guest numbers, on equalization

Slide 6

Adaptation May be doable to stop or minimize harm in a few cases (not all) E.g. Snow making on ski fields; blasts to forestall flooding Case by case appraisal required what is attainable, and practical? Adjustment is exorbitant Who will pay for it? Clients? Reserved assets (from carbon grant deals?)

Slide 7

Assessing the Cost Need physical projections of impacts and harm Factor in adjustment costs Project loss of tourism appearance Estimate loss of use from inbound guests (to area, state, Australia) Estimate the welfare misfortunes (buyers overflow) to Australian vacationers Model financial effects of changed consumption designs (utilizing a processable general harmony show) All these to be done in anticipated STCRC study

Slide 8

Tourism Impacts on Climate Change Matter of measuring the "carbon impression" of tourism-what amount of GGEs does it produce? What is "tourism"? – not in the records A blend of parts of a few commercial enterprises settlement, avionics, and so forth Direct emanations from tourism-e.g. from utilization of flying and engine vehicle fuel Indirect outflows e.g. From inn utilization of power Two option approaches-generation and use based

Slide 9

Production and Expenditure Based Footprints Production: discharges from creation by the different segments of the tourism business, as characterized in the Australian Tourism Satellite Account Expenditure: emanations from giving travelers will merchandise and administrations, including flight to Australia Draft generation based carbon impression now arranged for discharge soon

Slide 10

Carbon Footprints of International Visitors (tons)

Slide 11

Notes Ground segment incorporates immediate and backhanded Aviation incorporates coordinate just Based on Lundie, Dwyer and Forsyth (2007); BA carbon adding machine

Slide 12

Aviation draws specifically consideration as a wellspring of GGEs Around 2% of world aggregate GGEs from aeronautics liable to be more harming than surface outflows (recommended multiplier, 2.7) – yet this issue is disputable Aviation turning out to be more fuel effective, at around 1% PA Little extension for huge movements to option advances in short/medium term (next 15 years) Aviation request becoming quickly Total GGEs from avionics will become modestly quickly, and offer of aggregate GGEs will become over the medium term Hence, flying is questionable

Slide 13

Impacts of Climate Change Mitigation Policies Could have carbon charge, or tradable licenses Various carbon costs: Low $20/ton; High, $50 per ton Can take into consideration higher harm by flying – use component of 2.5

Slide 14

Impacts on Trip Costs-Low Scenario % expansion in complete excursion cost Low carbon cost, low harm GROUND Air Fare Total NZ 4.1 2.4 3.6 HK 3.0 2.8 2.9 UK 3.7 3.4 3.5

Slide 15

Impacts on Trip Costs-High Scenario % expansion in absolute outing cost High carbon cost, high harm GROUND Air Fare Total NZ 10.4 15.0 11.7 HK 7.6 17.4 10.9 UK 9.1 21.2 14.7

Slide 16

Implications for Tourism Carbon valuing will influence outbound and inbound tourism (last presumably more) Impact entirely huge under "terrible" case situation Price increment over a time of years Partial balance results: General balance results would be less negative for tourism-different changes, for example, lower conversion standard, would help tourism Of tourism commercial enterprises, just flying would be liable to be granted numerous free tradable licenses a large portion of tourism commercial ventures essentially pay higher costs for inputs

Slide 17

Issues-1: Policy Revenues and Adaptation Costs Major expenses will be forced on tourism by environmental change-loss of business sectors, adjustment costs Tourists will pay more under environmental change alleviation strategies, however different commercial ventures and governments increase higher incomes Who ought to pay for expenses of adjustment? Should incomes be reserved?

Slide 18

Issues-2:Tourism as a "footloose" Export Industry Special thought might be given for "footloose" fare commercial enterprises (which may move seaward and produce GGEs there) Tourism and flight are more footloose than most businesses Could consider exclusion of global avionics from environmental change strategy (e.g. ETS) (aside from where other accomplice nation incorporates flight) Cost: higher expense of meeting home targets Benefit: less loss of tourism advantages Benefit: lower GGEs in contender nations Balance of expenses and advantages vague

Slide 19

Issues-3:Aviation Cost Pass Through It has been accepted that carriers will go through to travelers the costs (quality) of grants/duties 100% Passengers will react and diminish travel Airlines may experience issues in passing however the full cost-particularly in the short run Impact of environmental change arrangement will be not exactly under full go through But imagine a scenario where aircrafts are sans given licenses. Do they go through the expense ($0) or the worth (very high) of the licenses? Little effect on travel if the previous is the situation

Slide 20

Issues-4: Aviation-Special Measures in Order? Avionics a developing wellspring of GGEs, even with new innovation and environmental change arrangements Many call for extra measures on flight limitations on travel, additional expenses and so on May be mainstream, however poor natural financial matters Under the ETS, general expenses to the economy are minimized by confronting all commercial ventures with the same carbon value some conform more than others Special measures on flying add to costs But don\'t lessen GGEs altogether (set by the ETS) In aggregate: exceptional measures coordinated to aeronautics add to costs yet accomplish nothing by method for diminishments of GGEs

Slide 21

Conclusions Costs of environmental change on tourism very high for Australia Tourism adds to GGEs through utilization of transport and in a roundabout way, power Climate change strategies will add to the expense of tourism, yet the net effect needs facilitate exploration to set up Aviation is a dubious range, and it represents various issues to be determined Best taken care of exhaustive part of a general environmental change approach as opposed to by extraordinary measures
