Résumé

This paper adds to the gender discourse in sustainable African tourism development from the corporate social responsibility (CSR) perspective. Specifically, we examine the impact of CSR on the development of rural women in cultural tourism. A total of 600 rural women were sampled across the Niger Delta. Results from the use of a logit model indicate a significant relationship between CSR and cultural tourism development in oil host communities in Nigeria. This implies that CSR of a multinational oil company is a critical factor for sustaining cultural tourism. The findings suggest increased female participation in General Memorandum of Understanding interventions of multinational oil company and the need to pay close attention to which extent the participation of rural women in the General Memorandum of Understanding projects may be limited by cultural and traditional obstacles.
