Climate change and its impacts on nations, regions and populations as well as its anthropogenic causes have become one of the prevailing issues of global society and, hence, subject to ongoing debates among e.g. the natural, political and social sciences. Due to both considerable contributions in accelerating global warming and the severe impacts (to be) faced with, the tourism industry has increasingly been paid attention to. Accordingly, studies focusing upon the implementation for adaption strategies to mitigate effects upon destinations and possible causes for barriers encountered during the process have been carried out to a greater extend. Likewise, this study will examine impediments for resilience to adaption taking the tourism industry of the small island state Tuvalu as an example. Tuvalu has been frequently described as highly susceptible to any changes in climate, not only due to its low-lying islets and fragile natural environment, but also due to overall small-scale and fragmented developments within the private sector. So has pro-activeness for adaptive measures yet been limited within Tuvalu’s tourism, although the industry is recognized to drive future economic growth.
