This project aims to enhance the linkages between tourism and local communities in Ethiopia by assessing the current links between tourist activity and the poor in the local economy; suggesting a range of interventions that will improve the poverty reducing impact of tourism; and providing suggestions as to how the emerging Ethiopian Sustainable Tourism Development Project can be designed to most effectively support tourism in Ethiopia. The project is funded by the World Bank.
