Jamaica

Tourism is the mainstay of the Jamaican economy, but the dominance of self-sufficient resort complexes means that there are limited opportunities for local people to benefit.

What we’re doing: Over the past few years, we have been helping to spread the economic benefits of tourism to local communities by encouraging visitors to explore and spend money outside their hotels. Our latest project is supporting small and micro businesses to access the tourism market and benefit from the opportunities it brings.
