Namibia: Community Based Tourismus für Nordwest-Region, Mid Term Review EZA Projekt 1889-01/2002
NACOBTA's work in the region is built on the previous work supported by the Austrian Development Co-operation in developing the North West Tourism Master Plan and in Phase II the North West Tourism Options Plan (development of 10 conservancy tourism option plans). This tourism planning forms the framework within which tourism development takes place in the North West region. Work will also be integrated with that of other key stakeholders and service providers.
The focus of this project is on supporting activities that will lead to the development of sustainable enterprises including joint venture tourism lodges, mid-market lodges, campsites, information centres, tour guide groups, traditional/cultural villages and craft outlets. In addition the project makes provision for the completion of up to 20 conservancy tourism option plans for new and emerging conservancies in the region.
