This report presents the analysis of technical feasibility and cost effectiveness of greenhouse gas mitigation options for the tourism sector in the Caribbean. This work comprises part of the deliverables under Component 1 of the Caribbean Carbon Neutral Tourism Program (CCNTP).

Discussions with stakeholders have pointed to capacity building as one of the most important GHG mitigation measures for the Caribbean, as “knowledge is power”.

Stakeholders with the knowledge of carbon accounting and the principles of low carbon tourism/economies are better able to identify approaches to reduce GHGs within the own operations. Additionally, approaches identified and accepted from the tourism stakeholder have a strong potential for being widely accepted across the sector and maintained over time.
