The number of tourists traveling worldwide is set to increase from one billion today to around double that figure over the next fifteen odd years fueling a major spurt in generation of tourism jobs. Around 5% of global exports and nearly ten percent of worldwide GDP is generated from tourism. However, this is creating negative environmental impacts for the planet. Especially disturbing is that means of tourist travel have not changed much and air travel remains a major source of pollution. Governments need to step up efforts to curb this but unfortunately not much is being done. A UN summit next year in Paris seeks to address this issue and finalize a sustainable tourism benchmark.
