How can I find tourism projects driven by the needs of local people?

Build A Community

Some countries are moving away from mass tourism to community-based tourism. In the community-based tourism model, local groups first appraise the impact of various types of activity on their lifestyle and environment, then choose what they want to promote and what they want to prohibit. These projects allow visitors to live side by side with locals and experience off-the-beaten path adventures. A simple way to find projects is to type in "Community based projects" in your search and you'll get a list of projects in different countries.
