  • Reconstruction and Development of the First Phase of the Xai-Xai Beach Water Supply


  • Construction of the Backset Distributor Road; and

  • Elaboration of a Tourist Marketing Portfolio.

By realisation of these projects, an ad hoc and consequently a haphazard approach to the resolution of development problems would definitely be given up and prerequisites would be created for a sustainable tourism development, as well as for the development of other accompanying activities in the area


In order to transfer to the Mozambican experts an adequate knowledge and training, particularly relevant to tourism being the main activity in the pilot site, Xai-Xai Beach, the training task was based on the following components:

  • 1.

    Learning from the existing examples of tourism development and management relevant to the pilot site in environmental and market oriented issues;

  • 2.

    Providing on-the-job training by international experts that includes activities relevant to particular components of the project, such as tourism and physical planning, design of infrastructure projects, implementation framework elaboration, etc.; and

  • 3.

    Elaboration and implementation of the Demonstration project as a specific component of on- the-job training providing the national experts with the guidelines for implementation of the planning proposals.


Based on the discussion the general conclusion were prepared and anonymously adopted by the Workshop participants. They are as follows:

  • The IDP was elaborated in a participative way, 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 by integrating them into a coherent planning and implementation document, the IDP corresponds to the development needs of the Xai-Xai Praia coastal zone;

  • The IDP represents an unique and innovative experience in Mozambique, deserving support from the national and local institutions;
