Context Economic linkages can help to retain the economic benefits of tourism in a destination by linking local suppliers with the tourism industry. Responsible Tourism Initiative experiments at Kumarakom such an effort to strengthen the local production and value addition linking the hospitality sector partners in the move. Food presents a strong opportunity for destinations to create backward sectoral linkages between tourism and agriculture. Creating such backward linkages would reduce leakages from tourism and also increase the multiplier effect from tourist spending. This Village Life trip gives a real life experience into the farmer lives at the village and to involve with the rural activities.
