In Goa, water supply to local communities has reduced because of demand from tourism industry. Supplying water and other facilities to tourist establishments is more important than supplies to the local communities. Construction of hotels on the coast has negative impact on fisherfolk and small traders and has debilitated the environment. Many a time tourism development occurs in violation of the basic tenets of democratic decision-making. Communities and local people’s organisations often feel helpless in the face of top down developments. But now armed with the Right to Information Act (RTI) they can question the government, at the panchayat, state and the central level on all the details of tourism projects planned or implemented in their area or district. Right to Information Act (RTI) has become a critical tool to demand transparency in decision-making and governance.
