Tourism and travel make Paris targets unachievable
In the year 2100, the world's population will be flying nine times as many kilometres as in 2015, and the average travel distance for all tourist journeys is set to double over the same period. Aviation, 90% of which is tourism, will not be able to escape a severe reduction in growth, or even no growth, if we are to meet the climate targets. This conclusion is drawn by Paul Peeters, who will be awarded his PhD for his thesis on this subject at TU Delft on Wednesday 15 November.

These are among the findings from research carried out by Bart Overakker, who graduates from the Faculty of TPM at TU Delft on Thursday 12 October.

However, the large amount of information that is available nowadays is having an increasingly greater impact on the effectiveness of relief efforts. You could indeed go as far as to say that the provision of information should be a human right, as Bartel Van de Walle will argue in his inaugural address at TU Delft on Friday, 10 March 2017.
