China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and Climate Change: The Mediation Role of Tourism Development
This research aims to explore the role of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) on tourism development and tourism development on climate change. In addition, the study also examines the mediating role of tourism development on the relationship between China Pakistan Economic Corridor and climate change. The study employed “Partial Least Square Structural Equation Modeling Approach” and results from the structural analysis suggest that CPEC significantly influences tourism development and tourism development in return significantly contributes to climate change. Moreover, tourism development partially mediates the relationship between CPEC and climate change. The findings of this study extend the understanding of CPEC and Tourism development in the context of climate change and offer implications for policy makers and other stake holders to minimize the destruction of climate change in future
