Best Partnership for Poverty Reduction

The Best for Poverty Reduction is one of the longest standing categories of the World Responsible Tourism Awards and African Responsible Tourism Awards. In 2017, the emphasis is on partnerships between tourism businesses and non-governmental organisations/community-based organisations that use travel experiences to achieve a measurable reduction in poverty among a local community, and include local and marginalised people – creating economically and socially inclusive forms of tourism provision and shared value with local communities.

What the Judges want: Evidence of collaboration or joint working between two or more tourism businesses having made a significant contribution to the reduction of poverty in a local community, inclusion of local and marginalised people, and a long-term sustainable vision for continuing their work, and providing a working example for others tourism providers around the world.
