Abstract

The present and future climate change will lead to impacts on tourism, which will change the human thermal comfort and tourist seasonality, decrease landscape aesthetic quality to be expressed by continuous reductions of beach area, changes in vegetation and animal biogeographical distribution and loss of biodiversity, among other.
Being Adaptation the intent of adjustment to the impacts of climate change in order to minimize damage and find opportunities, and Mitigation any intervention that aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the dilemma arises, in a consequences, or mitigating, offensively, the causes of climate change in tourism sector.
As such, it's paramount to discuss the duality between the challenges of adaptation and mitigation of climate change in tourism science, not in a contingent way, but, above all, by the need for transformative transition of tourist industry towards sustainable exploitation of landscape as means of increasing the resilience of tourist regions.
