The Tourism for Rural Poverty Alleviation Programme (TRPAP) aims to improve the livelihood of people by harnessing their participation in tourism development activities. TRPAP contributes to poverty alleviation in the country by mainstreaming sustainable tourism policies, and developing strategies and innovative models that are pro-poor, pro women, pro-environment and pro-community. TRPAP aims to trial and develop different product models and institutional mechanisms that are appropriate for sustainable rural tourism. TRPAP operates at a range of levels including village, district and national, involving communities, local government bodies, tourism entrepreneurs and national government agencies including the NTB. The Programme has been instrumental in developing and enhancing the capacity of MoCTCA and NTB in rural pro-poor tourism planning, strategy and implementation. Community participation is central to TRPAP’s approach, and is used as a tool for alleviating poverty, engaging local bodies, strengthening environmental conservation, empowering disadvantaged groups and women, and social mobilization. Insurgency and security problems affected Nepal tourism and constrained development during the implementation period. TRPAP is acknowledged for its rural development and livelihood benefits. Local communities were generally receptive and supportive of the initiatives. A sense of ownership has prevailed through organisational models developed by TRPAP. There are good opportunities for national and international pro-poor sustainable tourism practitioners to learn lessons from the TRPAP experience. There are requests to replicate the Programme in other districts of Nepal and elsewhere. The Government of Nepal (GoN) has partnered with DFID, UNDP and SNV Nepal to implement TRPAP.
