African Propoor Tourism Development Centre (APTDC) offers a wide range of management and development support in the propoor tourism sector. We have professional staff that has experience in pro-poor tourism development and management. Our staff has been involved in development of pro-poor initiatives. We offer pro-poor tourism services to the local communities in the following areas.
Pro-poor tourism Projects Feasibility Studies
Service includes helping the local communities to make informed decisions at the earliest stages of a pro-poor tourism venture and ensure that these key decisions are implemented throughout the development stages of it.
Pro-poor tourism Development
For Pro-poor tourism, to be successful, it must promote sustainable development by establishing a durable productive base that allows local inhabitants and tourism service providers to enjoy rising standards of living. Tourism is a rapidly growing sector that, if developed responsibly, provides an ideal opportunity for job creation and sustainable development. All too often, however, the benefits from tourism are gained from outside operators while the local populations are left to pay the costs. This is particularly true in rural and developing regions.
African Pro-poor Tourism Development Centre has extensive experience in providing assistance to people in a vast array of locations to identify and realise the tourism potential of their areas. The approach taken by African Pro-poor Tourism Development Centre facilitate the process of integrated ecotourism development within a local, regional and international context.
Pro-poor tourism Marketing
'Pro-poor tourism is not tourism unless sold', hence we specialize in pro-poor tourism marketing. We aim at helping community tourism ventures and establishments committed to pro-poor tourism to increase arrivals, sales, profits, create tourism marketing plans, reach goals, start or rejuvenate profitable pro-poor ventures.
