While it is important that governments take urgent action to reduce carbon emissions as a major cause of climate change, many of the “climate action” plans of governments across the Asia/Pacific region still treat climate change as an environmental and industrial issue. Most climate policies today fail to recognize that climate change is also an ethical issue involving human rights and justice.
This needs the independent and democratic trade unions representing tourism workers to be involved in decision-making on climate action plans. Because the only way for climate action plans to work, is for working people to be part of the plan.
