Routes and Gateways: Key issues for the development of tourism routes and gateways and their potential for Pro-Poor Tourism

Working papers

The report briefly discusses ideas of dispersal and concentration related to tourism flows. Firstly, the aims and objectives of dispersal and concentration strategies are explored. This is supported by practical examples, in particular by discussing the development of ‘wine-routes’ in South Africa. Secondly, some key issues and prerequisites for the success of route developments are highlighted. Strategies that are needed to maintain and achieve pro poor objectives of route development are discussed.
