Xai-Xai IDP – ANNEXES

FAO-PAP/RAC-MICOA

  • A good relationship MICOA has developed with the RSA Ministry of Environment and Tourism guarantees a good reception and presentation of achieved results to Mozambican trainees.

Objectives

The existing tourism development in Mozambique, particularly in the Xai-Xai district, is mainly based on limited facilities that remained from colonial times, and a few development incentives that occurred recently in the area (the Zongoene lodge). Most of the officials working in the relevant government institutions at the local level (Directorate for Industry, Commerce and Tourism, Department of Physical Planning, Directorate for Public Works, etc.) have a very limited knowledge of managing tourism and almost no basic experience in the development of international tourism.

The main objective of the study tour was to present to national experts, i.e. the selected national members of the joint working team, the various stages and examples of the coastal tourism development process. The basic fields of interest were as follows:

Environmental considerations based environmental impact appraisal;

  • Communication network comprising roads, pathways and parking areas network, a small port or a mooring site, and boat landing facilities;
