Abstract: Handicrafts are key cultural products consumed in Nigeria tourism industry. Owing to low entry barriers, as handicrafts require a low level of capital investment, there is potential to develop vaible linkages between tourism and local handicrafts sectors that create economic oppourtunities for local artisans. Thus, we assess the impact of a new corporate social responsibility (CRS) model of multinational oil companies on the development of rural young people (RYP) in cultural tourism in the Niger Delta of Nigeria. Six hundred RYP were sampled across the rural Niger Delta region. Using the logit model, results indicate that RYP have remained widely excluded from the General Memorandumof Understandings (GMoUs) interventions in cultural prerogatives of elders, a caveat to the youths.
