Our world, our dignity, our future / 2015 European Year for Development
We are happy to promote this initiative and see how tourism is more and more strategically supported for Africa’s growth. Recently, as FEST, and in partnership with key stakeholders from Africa and International organisations, we have applied to coordinate a session on this topic, at the European Development Days, the Europe’s leading forum on development and international cooperation organised by the European Commission. Hopefully we will be selected, we can give our contribution.
About the project: Your opportunity to publish with UNWTO
UNWTO Affiliate Members Programme is currently preparing the next volume for the AM Regional Report series, Tourism Product Development in Africa, jointly produced with UNWTO Regional Programme for Africa, Casa África and UNWTO Affiliate Members, providing practical information on best practices with a specific focus on Tourism Product Development.
With this publication, the Affiliate Members Programme aims to contribute to trigger the vast untapped potential of African Tourism, thus leading the sector to become an even greater force for development of the Region.
The process, content and outcome will provide governments, businesses and academic institutions with a comprehensive overview of the major themes on Africa’s Tourism, as well as examples of best practices by public and private African entities in the area of Tourism Product Development.
In order to give this content more depth and specialised perspective, UNWTO invites organisations to contribute content in the form of case studies, to be edited and presented in the report.
The report will possess high visibility, will be distributed worldwide, and will present up-to-date information on the relevance of the topic. The publication will be available in three official UNWTO languages (English, French and Spanish).
