Abstract

This paper examines the issue of how tourism affects poverty in the context of the effects oftourism on an economy as a whole and on particular sectors within it. A framework foranalysing the channels through which tourism affects different households is developed, and acomputable general equilibrium model of the Brazilian economy is used to examine theeconomic impact and distributional effects of tourism in Brazil. It is shown that the effects onall income groups are positive. The lowest income households benefit from tourism but byless than some higher income groups. Policies that could redistribute greater shares of therevenue to the poor are considered.
