EQUITABLE TOURISM OPTIONS Major Activities and Achivements

Equitable Tourism Options is a research, campaign and advocacy organisation. We study the social, cultural, economic and environmental impact of tourism on host communities. We believe that tourism should be non exploitative, equitable and sustainable. Our Method of Work Research and Analysis Our research focuses on the impacts of tourism. The broad areas which we research on are the economic, social, cultural, environmental, and legal and policy impacts. We also critically analyse tourism development at destinations on how it impacts the lives and livelihood of local communities, their social milieu and their environment. Campaigns and Advocacy We initiate campaigns and support peoples struggles, against unjust, undemocratic and unsustainable forms of tourism. We advocate peoples concerns with local, regional and national government and lobby for change. Our advocacy aims for decentralised democracy and we believe that communities should have a decisive voice in the access, control and ownership over their livelihood, natural resources and common resources Networking We build networks of people; grassroots organisations, local communities, activists, researchers, trade unions, legal and policy experts, who are concerned, as we are, with ensuring that tourism planning, policy and implementation is equitable, people-centred and just. We rely on our network partners to build our perspectives from the ground. CHILD AND TOURISM We work with local communities, concerned groups, the tourism industry and other players to ensure that the rights of children are protected in the context of tourism. We endeavour to influence central and state governments to incorporate, implement and monitor child sensitive guidelines in their respective policies and legislations. ECOSYSTEMS, COMMUNITIES AND TOURISM We work on international, national and local level policies and processes to build an understanding of environmental impacts of tourism. We critique current models of tourism; all which have a bearing on ecological sustainability, biodiversity and sustainable livelihoods. GLOBALISATION, IMPACTS AND TOURISM We provide a developing country perspective at the national and international fora on the impacts of trade and economic policies on tourism development and community benefit. We work on influencing the national governments trade and economic policies related to tourism to prioritise community rights, benefits and local regulation. GOVERNANCE, LAW AND TOURISM We work with rural and urban Local Self Governing Institutions to exercise their rights and to develop guidelines and mechanisms to strengthen local regulation of tourism and to ensure that they play an active and decisive role in tourism development. TOURISM EDUCATION We aim to influence how tourism is taught in India by mainstreaming critical perspectives and attempt changes in tourism curriculum. We engage with students, teachers and tourism institutions by building awareness on tourism impacts, encouraging research and welcoming interns. WOMEN AND TOURISM Our work examines ways in which women can have greater access, control and ownership over livelihoods and natural resources as well as access to the benefits in the context of tourism. We endeavour to influence policy makers for evolving greater gender sensitive models and policies for tourism.
