✨ We share significant developments regarding the "Consulting Services for Integrated Tourism Development, Infrastructure, and Livelihood Improvement in Unguja, Zanzibar" project! This initiative, supported by the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar (RGoZ) and the World Bank's Boosting Inclusive Growth for Zanzibar (BIG-Z) project, aims to elevate the quality of life in three tourism gateway villages: Nungwi, Chwaka, and Makunduchi.
🛤️ The proposed activities for this project are designed to enhance infrastructure, revitalize heritage, and improve livelihoods while preserving each village's unique character. The project recognizes the broad scope of the assignment, spanning small physical infrastructure, social aspects, and tourism market development. An integrated approach is essential to uplift local livelihoods, involve communities in construction, operation, and maintenance, and collaborate with local officials and businesses on branding and promoting local attractions.
🏝️ Overall Objectives:
The overarching aim is to demonstrate how tourism development can overcome challenges and sustainably benefit local communities. Specific objectives include:
- Developing Integrated Tourism Development Plans for each village.
- Prioritizing physical investments and creating spatial plans.
- Designing and implementing a Tourism Development Support Program.
- Providing technical assistance for tourism product development and sustainable waste management.
- Ensuring strong coordination between communities, stakeholders, and relevant government agencies.
🤝 Key Stakeholders:
The President’s Office – Finance and Planning (POFP), the Ministry of Tourism and Heritage Zanzibar (MoTH), and the three villages will collaborate closely throughout this 3-year engagement.
We're excited to embark on this journey to uplift local communities and promote sustainable tourism and to be back in Zanzibar.
Stay tuned for further updates as we work towards these important objectives together!
