Hurricanes and cyclones are more intense and frequent; the minimum temperatures are higher than normal, as well as droughts and floods are stronger in several tourist destinations.

The methodology was based on reports and articles developed by major scientific organizations worldwide, which provided subsidies to develop certain implications for the Bahia destinations. Identifying the vulnerability of destinations front of a climate change scenario future, will help to development strategies for mitigation and scientific research in the area in the next years.
