ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to determine and build tourism development indicators responding to climate change. Delphi survey and AHP were employed to carry out this study. The attributes of tourism development to respond climate change were analyzed and selected. The importance of each attribute was evaluated, reviewed, and verified, and tourism development indicators were developed to respond climate change. By arranging the tourism development indicators, the importance of each perspective was investigated through AHP. A total of 148 tourism development indicators were drawn to cope with climate changes. Thirty of them were grouped into the field of land use, 30 were in the energy and building, 25 in the transportation, 26 in the recycled resources, and 37 were in the tourism management. The findings are mostly consistent with previous studies in the tourism field, and somewhat consistent with previous studies in architecture and ecological environment. The results could be used as the guideline of effective decision-making for tourism developers. However, this study has limitations relating to the generalization and interpretation because the developed indicators have yet to be objectively evaluated and applied.
