  • Development of a SADC Tourism Programme

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    The German International Cooperation (GIZ) supports the SADC FANR
    Directorate through the SADC Programme – Transboundary Use and
    Protection of Natural Resources (TUPNR) to improve the implementation of
    SADC protocols and strategies for sustainable natural resource
    management by regional and national actors. The Programme supports
    implementation of the Protocol on Wildlife Conservation and Law
    Enforcement and the Protocol on Forestry; the Protocol on the Development
    of Tourism; the SADC Law Enforcement and Anti-Poaching Strategy (2016-
    2021); as well as the SADC Transfrontier Conservation Areas Programme.
    In July 2016, SADC Ministers responsible for Tourism at their meeting of
    July 2016 held in Gaborone, Botswana approved the organizational
    transformation of RETOSA from being a public organization to a lean, more
    agile, dynamic and private sector driven regional marketing entity, leaving
    Tourism Policy Coordination functions the SADC Secretariat. Consequently
    a Tourism Coordination Unit was established within the SADC Food,
    Agriculture and Natural Resources (FANR) Directorate. In a Joint Meeting of
    SADC Ministers responsible for Environment and Natural Resources,
    Fisheries and Aquaculture, and Tourism held from 23-24 November 2018 in
    Johannesburg, South Africa, Ministers directed the SADC Secretariat in
    collaboration with Member States to develop a SADC Tourism Programme
    by August 2018 and to mobilize resources to support the implementation of
    SADC Tourism Programme once developed. The Programme will serve as a
    roadmap to guide and coordinate the development of ethical tourism industry
    in the region and to facilitate removal of barriers to tourism development and
    growth.
    It is against this background that the TUPNR Programme seeks the services
    of an individual consultant to develop a SADC Tourism Programme to serve
    as a roadmap to guide and coordinate the development of an ethical tourism
    industry in the region and to facilitate removal of barriers to tourism development and growth. The selected consultant will enter into a contract
    with GIZ.
