National Consultation on “Street Vendors and Tourism: Right to Livelihood and Space”
September 15, 2011 to September 16, 2011

 
National Consultation on “Street Vendors and Tourism: Right to Livelihood and Space”


Organised by National Hawkers Federation, YUVA & EQUATIONS

15 September to 16 September 2011
New Delhi

In India, the informal sector contributes significantly to the expanding tourism economy. Hawkers and street vendors, wayside dhabas and eateries, vendors selling handicrafts, trinkets and other items for tourists all represent a part of the informal labour force in the tourism sector. With tourism providing a seasonal nature of occupational opportunity, it attracts many people, especially women to join the vending business. However, current and past tourism planning processes have not taken the informal sector into consideration and they have not been considered as stakeholders in tourism despite their significant contribution to the economy and services to the tourists. There is a dire need to recognise this linkage between tourism and vending within the larger framework of the informal sector.

This Consultation aims to:

  • Share and link experiences of the representatives of street vendors from tourism destinations – aspirations, realities, challenges
  • Analyse policy and legislations and identify gaps in the context of tourism
  • Identify issues for campaign and strategise
  • Evolve strategies for policy & advocacy work at the state and central level
