Xai-Xai Municipality should give priority in defining the long-term landfill site which should also satisfy the needs of Xai-Xai Beach;
The “Development Agency” should report regularly to the Municipal Council and District Government on the implementation progress following the IDP proposed Action Plan; and
Xai-Xai IDP – ANNEXES
It is recommended that the integrated development plans, similar to the Xai-Xai IDP, should be developed in other sites of coastal Mozambique, in particular where rapid tourism development is taking place. On the condition that the funds are secured priority should be given to elaboration of the IDP for Bilene and Manjacaze tourist resorts.
Based on the relevant discussions, general conclusions were prepared and anonymously adopted by Workshop participants. They are as follows:
The IDP was elaborated in a participatory manner, involving all interested parties and stakeholders in the Xai-Xai Praia coastal area;
Taking into account the environmental, social and political characteristics and potentials, and integrating them into a coherent planning and implementation document, the IDP corresponds to the development needs of the Xai-Xai Praia coastal zone; and
The IDP represents a unique and innovative experience in Mozambique, and, therefore, it should be supported by national and local institutions.
