Il turismo torna in Medio Oriente, con la minaccia del cambiamento climatico

Dall’analisi di Suha Ma’ayeh, Asia Times. After a two-year slowdown, tourism is once again booming in the Middle East. As countries lift their Covid-19 restrictions and demand for return tickets, the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) projects that the sector’s contribution to regional GDP will grow more than 36% in 2022, to more than US$256 billion. While this is undoubtedly great news for countries where tourism accounts for a large share of revenue, there’s an existential threat to this tourism rebound: climate change. The countries most dependent on tourism are also the very locations most affected by the changing weather.
