Tourism can be a powerful tool for reducing inequalities if it engages local populations and all key stakeholders in its development. Tourism can serve as an effective means for economic integration and diversification and poverty reduction; it can impact on earning income and people’s livelihoods, development of local and rural economies as well as on the natural and cultural environments. Tourism can contribute to urban renewal and the development of rural areas by giving people the opportunity to prosper in their place of origin.
