The high rate of urban population growth is one of the major problems constraining the growth of urban centres. The main aim of this paper is to examine the relationship between urbanisation, local food crop production and the tourism output of Pakistan. The findings show that a 1 per cent increase in local food crop production will increase tourism output by 1.77 per cent, at the 1 per cent level of significance, holding all other variables constant. There is a unidirectional causality running from local food crop production to urbanisation. This study has implications for policy‐makers and practitioners.
