'PEOPLE'S PARTICIPATION FOR PARTICIPATORY PLANNING AND EMPOWERMENT THROUGH RESPONSIBLE TOURISM' (PEPPER) is an attempt towards establishing 100 percent structured RT destinations. Envisaged at turning the face of tourism, it pictures the sustainable development of a destination by bringing the local community also into its fold.
The main objective of PEPPER is discovering new zones or unexplored destinations that are rich with tourism potential and developing them in a hundred percent sustainable fashion with the active involvement of the local community. It is a process of finding out lesser-known tourist destinations that should be developed with people’s participation. This scheme enables the people and the Local Self Governing institutions to participate in decision making regarding the activities.
