    This paper presents a knowledge management diagram designed to reconcile two conceptual approaches relating tourism and climatic change. A knowledge management framework is proposed to counter the tendency of scientists, policymakers, the tourism industry and nongovernmental organizations to polarize two conceptual approaches. Using the diagram, tourism researchers can place their studies within broader spatial and disciplinary contexts. This format provides the basis for gap analysis and knowledge management, which can inform and direct future studies on tourism and sustainability.
