Are the tourism plans for Lakshadweep the road to reform or to ruin?

Plans to develop Lakshadweep into a major tourism destination, with villas in the lagoon and other measures have been in the news recently. Tourism development promises job opportunities and revenue, but there are also questions on the impacts of this kind of tourism on the ecosystem and local livelihoods, carrying capacity of the islands and community participation.

Equitable Tourism Options and the Lakshadweep Research Collective invite you to join us in an open discussion with ecologists, lawyers, the tourism industry and islanders to attempt a nuanced understanding of tourism in one of India’s most unique places.
