New nature tourism report

Robin Turner, graduate student at the University of California at Berkeley, dropped her preliminary research report by the HOORC Library today. Robin spent 18 months in South Africa and Botswana looking at nature tourism destinations and talking to the people wh0 live around these places. Her study area included the communities of Khwai, Mababe, Sankuyo, and Shorobe in the Okavango Delta. The study sets the stage for continued work on how benefits from a collective involvement in nature tourism can be maximized while its negative outcomes are reduced. Nature tourism and the local political economy in Botswana and South Africa : the effects of individual and collective local involvement in tourism : a preliminary research report , in English and Setswana, can be found in HOORC's Library.
