Abstract or Summary
  • Ecotourism is recognized for its economic potential to reduce poverty in least developed countries. There is a general belief that ecotourism will benefit local development, but previous research has found mixed results. This paper explores the idea of ecotourism and its impact on local sanitation in Nepal’s Annapurna Conservation Area. The research uses a case studies approach to understand the existing socio-cultural characteristics of the local communities and how ecotourism plays a role in local sanitation. Using household field surveys for socio-demographic information and semi-structured interviews, this paper analyses ecotourism and sanitation of local communities and provides policy recommendations for improving the sanitation standard.
