Sustainable Tourism through Energy Efficiency
with Adaptation and Mitigation Measures in Pangandaran

ABOUT THE PROJECT

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

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.

MITIGATION

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.
