The research reported here has been undertaken jointly by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and the Centre for Responsible Tourism at the University of Greenwich (CRT), together with in-country case study collaborators. It was funded by the Economic and Social Research Unit (ESCOR) of the UK Department for International Development (DFID). This work was a follow-up to a desk-based review of tourism and poverty conducted for DFID in 1999 by Deloitte and Touche, IIED and the ODI. The review identified a number of strategies for developing or supporting pro-poor tourism, but noted that these strategies had not been tried or tested. The current work attempts to do that. This volume reviews the experience of pro-poor tourism strategies based on six commissioned case studies. The case studies used a common methodology developed within this project. The case study work was undertaken mainly between September and December 2000, and the synthesis work in January to March 2001. The case studies have all been published separately as seven Pro-Poor Tourism Working Papers (the experience of two community tourism associations – NACOBTA and UCOTA in Namibia and Uganda – is covered in two reports): No 1. Practical strategies for pro-poor tourism, Wilderness Safaris South Africa: Rocktail Bay and Ndumu Lodge. Clive Poultney and Anna Spenceley No 2. Practical strategies for pro-poor tourism.
