"Community-based tourism is both an idea about and an approach to the development and planning of tourism. Its notion rests on the assumption that the success (and sustainability) of tourism requires the involvement of those who are affected by the development. Approaches to community-based tourism consider how and why those who are affected by tourism are (or should be) involved in its development. Broadly speaking, community-based tourism takes as its starting point a concern with the needs and desires of members of the host community."
