EXPLORING ECOTOURISM

Tourism and Poverty Alleviation

POVERTY WIKI

What kind of a world do you want for everybody?

reframe the question

FLICKR ALBUM: Responsible Travel


Poverty alleviation starts with creation of employment. We will explore these ideas in detail on the wiki.

A few words about language. We prefer the term poverty alleviation tourism over 'Pro Poor Tourism,' a clumsy term with noble sentiments. From the name it is unclear whether this tourism exploits the poor or works toward the alleviation of poverty.

Also, watch your language and avoid poverty porn -- the intimate depiction of poverty in film, television, etc., seen as being for the entertainment of an audience which is wealthy by comparison and therefore as being exploitative.

QUESTIONS

Do development agencies track the effectiveness of job creation?
What are specific examples of tourism used to create jobs and to what degree does this alleviate poverty?
What use is aid where corruption is rife?
