The world’s climate is changing at unprecedented rates affecting nearly every industry globally. Tourism, because of its strong connection to the natural environment is particularly susceptible to climate change. The paper outlines the conceptual framework of the different types of climate change impacts and justifies the necessity of economic impact studies, especially on a local level. Results of a number of impacts studies on a global level (about international tourist flows and expenditures), as well as on a European and country level (both about summer and winter tourism) have been examined. However, the purpose is not to give single values of damage or impact of climate change, but to explore the plausible ranges of impacts. In conclusion, the paper presents the expected results of a new research project – CLAVIER (Climate Change and Viability: Impacts on Central and Easter) funded by the 6th Framework Programme and aiming at filling in the research gap concerning studies on a local level, related especially to economic impact and vulnerability issues.
