Global tourism industry is a major contributor of CO2 emissions that cause climate change. Yet at the same time, tourism activities are highly dependent on the climate. This interconnection requires a tourism destination to increase its resilience toward climate change impacts, both through adaptation and mitigation actions.
Pangandaran is a popular coastal tourism destination in West Java province, Indonesia. The project STREAM (Sustainable Tourism through Energy Efficiency with Adaptation and Mitigation Measures in Pangandaran) serves as a model of innovative climate change mitigation and adaptation measures ‐ adopting an energy efficiency approach, while strengthening local structures for the sustainability of this tourism destination.
Adaptation measure is an effort to adapt to climate change impacts that occur naturally, either by minimizing level of destruction or taking the opportunity to create innovation. There are two adaptation pilot projects within the framework of the STREAM project in Pangandaran, mangrove rehabilitation and coral reef restoration.Read More >
In order to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions from the tourism sector, the STREAM project aims to implement pilot energy efficiency and renewable energy measures to showcase a series of feasible solutions in Pangandaran. All measures to be implemented are embedded in a framework of data collection, baseline creation, wider awareness raising, capacity building for key stakeholders, monitoring and evaluation and replication of best practice.Read More >
