Tourism-led poverty reduction programme: training modules

This project produces training modules on tourism and local development and tourism and agriculture for the International Trade Centre’s Tourism-led Poverty Reduction Programme. The module on tourism and local development provides an introduction to the tourism sector and how it can contribute to poverty reduction, and an overview of the potential involvement of local people and ways to expand the tourism supply chains while recognising socially and environmentally sustainable practices. The module on tourism and agriculture provides farmers and fishermen with the tools they need to assess the viability of accessing tourism markets, and buyers with the skills to develop sustainable partnerships with local producers. Both modules aim to impart an understanding of the potential linkages that can be created between local people and the tourism sector, and the potential costs and benefits.
