Guías en el Parque Rwenzori (Uganda)

Este trabajo ha explorado los beneficios que las comunidades pueden obtener a través del turismo, y las desventajas del turismo convencional que necesita revisarse para mejorar el involucramiento comunitario. Ha resaltado algunos de los retos que necesitan enfrentarse - no para condenar el TIC como inapropiado (cualquier estrategia de desarrollo traerá problemas de modernización a las comunidades rurales), sino para estimular más análisis sobre cuando o si es apropiado, y de más importancia, ¿cómo se puede enfrentar los retos? Por ejemplo:

La discusión ha resaltado apenas unas pocas estrategias que pudieran desarrollarse para hacer que el involucramiento de la comunidad en el turismo sea una herramienta efectiva para el desarrollo y la conservación, y esperamos que los comentarios de los equipos de revisión suministren muchas más respuestas y maneras a seguir.
