LANDSCAPE CONSERVATION AND TOURISM

LANDSCAPE CONSERVATION AND TOURISM

RESEARCH GROUP (LaCTRG)

 

CONCEPT NOTE

Introduction

Archaeology as a discipline has been discovered to have the key to the understanding of the present and postulating the future through empirical analysis of past human activities. Many archaeological sites and landscapes (both developed and undeveloped) abound in parts of South-eastern Nigeria with many of them being destroyed due to construction of roads, building of houses, vandalism, illegal activities of scavengers, erosion menace and other natural factors. Tourism on the other hand, is one of the major ways of preserving archaeological sites and harnessing them for meaningful economic gains. Indeed, tourism provides a springboard for harnessing the heritage resources of a people through conservation and subsequent promotion for sustainable socio-economic development.

 

In the past, issues and arguments have been raised on the workability of archaeology and tourism in solving human problems or impacting on the overall development of the human society. These have bordered on how the two concepts are related and how they can work harmoniously in solving socio-economic problems. The answers to the above issues can only be appreciated when archaeological investigations and findings along with the development of tourism sites and other related studies, are translated in solving some of the inherent challenges of the human environment in a developing nation like Nigeria, particularly southeast Nigeria. It is against this backdrop that the formation of a research group that will, through articulated archaeological and tourism investigations, contribute significantly in solving some basic human problems becomes imperative.

It is not out of place to say here that archaeology and tourism face serious personnel, structural and institutional challenges. While archaeologists are poorly funded, with limited resources and equipment to work with, those in the tourism industry are challenged by low level of infrastructural supply to designated tourist sites, inadequately developed or untapped tourist resources, and institutional factors among others. Landscape Conservation And Tourism Research Group (LaCTRG), as this group will be known, will explore the linkages between archaeology, tourism and development so as to seek ways of addressing emerging challenges.

COMPOSITION AND PROPOSED ACTIVITY SCOPE OF THE GROUP.

This research group will be domiciled in the Department of Archaeology and Tourism, University of Nigeria, Nsukka. It is a conglomeration of eminent professional researchers in various aspects of archaeology and tourism.
