Economic Impact

Village Ways works to provide a supplementary income stream to remote villages, in order to help stop outward migration. It is important that this income through tourism does not displace traditional livelihoods, or create dependency.

We are working with the Responsible Tourism Partnership to collate data on the local economic impact of the tourism we bring to these villages.

We have provided data for our partner villages in Binsar, where we generate 14% of the income to these villages. To view the infographic for the Binsar data, click here.

 

We will be providing similar data across our other Village Tourism Enterprises using the same Binsar model.
