Climate change and security has been evaluated as a global issue in many disciplines. It was suggested that the climate security term can be used to describe for all security issues related to the impact of climate change. To address this problem it was categorized within the scope of climate security discourses as human, national, international, and ecological security. Global climate change has particularly been identified as social and environmental security threats in tourism. The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship between climate security and tourism based on climate security discourses. In this context, this research offers a literature review on the place of climate security discourses in tourism. This review shows that all climate security discourses are mentioned without using as climate security term. Economic, health, environment, food, nature, global warming, sustainability, winter tourism, travel mobility, technological developments, tourism diversification and seasonality are highlighted in the literature. All mentioned issues can be classified under the climate security discourses as a result of that tourism has an interdisciplinary approach. 

Key words
