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. This book provides an overview and synthesis of a broad array of analyses of how tourism affects poverty.


1. Introduction 2. The Three Pathways: Understanding How Tourism Affects the Poor 3. The Scale of Flows to the Poor 4. Pathway 1: Direct Effects from Tourism to the Poor 5. Pathway 2: Secondary Benefit Flows from Tourism to the Poor 6. Pathway 3: Dynamic Effects on Macro and Local Economies 7. Impacts of Different Types of Tourism 8. Methods for Assessing the Impacts of Tourism on Poverty 9. A Different Perspective on Tourism and Poverty Index

Media reviews
'In bringing together the myriad research paths on this topic, this book provides signposts towardsi? 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 'This is a highly intelligent and engaging read which focuses on synthesising and creating change in the quality and quantity of research.'
