Crucially, PPT relies on and must be integrated into, wider tourism systems and the private sector. It is not a stand-alone option. As Ashley et al indicate (2001), when reviewing the results of case studies of PPT financed by the UKs DFID, successful PPT depends on the poor – i) having access to markets (private sector), ii) on the commercial viability of PPT projects, iii) on a policy framework that provides a secure investment climate (including access to land) (government – public sector), and iv) on effective stakeholder co-operation and strategy implementation: public private sector partnerships (Harrison 2008). SUMMARY
The examples that have been presented here share the common factor of being private sector driven but requiring a partnership with the public sector They offer opportunities for poverty alleviation based on economies of scale and supply chain/value chain interventions that demonstrate mutual benefit for i) the private sector (a viable business); ii)the public sector ( achievement of policy) and iii) the poor (better livelihoods).
