Building local partnerships

Toolkit/guidelines

Partnerships at the local level are about tourism companies delivering local economic and social benefits faster, to a higher quality, to a broader number of people or more sustainably, than could be achieved by acting alone or through conventional contractual or consultative relationships. Innovative partnerships between tourism business and local communities can link the ‘first’ and  'second’ economies to benefit both parties.
