Pro-poor tourism: putting poverty at the heart of the tourism agenda

This short yet interesting report, written by Caroline Ashley, Charlotte Boyd, and Harold Goodwin for the Overseas Development Institute(ODI), considers "how tourism affects the livelihoods of the poor and how positive impacts can be enhanced." Divided into brief sections, each consisting of about a paragraph, the paper begins with six policy conclusions which outline the main points of the paper. Throughout the paper, small snapshots of tourism in developing countries are posted, including the "Significance of tourism in poor countries," "How does participation by the poor differ by market segment?" and "Tourism affects livelihoods by changing access to assets." Pro-poor tourism offers an innovative approach to economic development in developing countries.
