Description

Review 'In bringing together the myriad research paths on this topic, this book provides signposts towards...a better understanding of how tourism can and does contribute to poverty reduction.' Shaun Mann, Investment Climate Advisory Services, World Bank Group and Tourism, Retail & Property, International Finance Corporation 'This is the first major publication to begin the task of collecting and collating what little evidence there is of a relationship between tourism and poverty alleviation, as opposed to the relationship between tourism and wealth creation, for which there is plenty of evidence. It will be a useful publication for academics, researchers and all involved in designing, assessing or promoting tourism projects which are in any way associated with general development goals.' Martin Mowforth, Research Fellow in Human Geography, School of Geography, University of Plymouth, UK 'Drawing on a wide range of empirical material, the authors clearly show how tourism - including mass tourism - can effectively alleviate poverty. Policy makers and academics should benefit from this invaluable guide to the literature.' David Harrison, School of Tourism and Hospitality Management, University of the South Pacific, Fiji Islands Product Description Encouraging tourism in poor countries is, surprisingly often, an effective way of achieving poverty reduction through inclusive economic growth. But not always. Sometimes international tourism development does little for the local economy and the livelihoods of the poor. Our understanding of how tourism affects the poor is often based on partial and shallow analysis. Researchers from different disciplines and practitioners with different objectives generally work in splendid isolation from each other and from the mainstream of development economics. Rhetoric, based on unsubstantiated facts, abounds. Detailed economic analysis remains buried and is rarely challenged for policy implications, let alone poverty implications. This book provides an overview and synthesis of a broad array of analyses of how tourism affects poverty. First, it pulls these together to identify three main pathways by which impacts on poverty can be delivered. Second, it reviews the empirical evidence on the scale and significance of impact of each pathway, exploring where comparisons can be made and where they cannot. Finally, it considers the different methods used to gather and collect data. 'Tourism and Poverty Reduction' draws on international evidence throughout, but provides particular insights into Africa and other less developed countries. The key aims are to enhance understanding of how tourism can affect poverty; the conditions under which poverty reduction can be achieved and the type of data and analysis policy-makers need in order to do this. It makes a major contribution to a more coherent, cross-disciplinary and sensitive approach to the tourism-poverty debate.
