Pakistan’s Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC) and the Tourism Ministry and National Highway Authority (NHA) put their collective heads together to address the issues facing tourism. As reported by the Daily Times, these groups felt climate change impacted tourism more than terrorism. “They said tourism was a victim of climate change mainly due to global warming and lawlessness. They said climate change inflicted socio-economic stresses on tourists, often leading them to criminality.”
Apparently, the fear of being blown up in a Marriot Hotel pales in comparison to the thought of being a touch warm and driven to criminality by the heat.
I bring this up because the threat of global unrest is moving up our concern list and there are not many sectors that would be impacted more than lodging, leisure, and tourism.
