Sustainable Community Development Alternative: Unlocking the Lock (Case Study of Northeast Region of India)

Margaret Gangte


The concept of sustainability minimally impact public policy discourse while the propounded strategies in the journal literature with varying goals often produce elusive outcomes. The case study attempts to address these inadequacies to give clarity of goal and purpose and to identify problems and need areas for policy support. The paper evaluates the viability of ecotourism for sustainable community development by using an impact study methodology. The paper emphasises on multidiscipline integration and community participation to ensure continuity of community development. The recommended strategy is to put in place public policies to facilitate local community participation for the responses on the changes experienced, so that public policy can respond effectively to the changes and needs as to ensure sustainability of development.
