The importance of tourism on enhancing socio economic development
of the local community is widely recognized in Africa. This book is
an inspirational focus on the main gender issues in the tourism
industry. It addresses causes, effects, constraints and challenges
encountered in the provision of tourism services. The book is
premised on the assumption that albeit earnings from Tourism
industry at the national levels are very impressive, yet, there is
a paradox on the gendered contribution of tourism wealth to the
local community. The book discusses gender issues, dynamics and
pragmatic path on enhancing equity in Tourism industry. It goes
further to analyse systemic challenges and behavioural approaches
to strengthen the industrial provision of tourism services.
Moreover, a critical analysis of the pragmatic path followed by the
owners of tourist hotels and curio shops in the process of
designing, developing and strengthening their knowledge on gender
issues at their work places is given. Lastly, a book offers a call
for designing a gender sensitive monitoring and evaluation tools
for tracking gender issues in tourism industry.
