|Overview : |
Uganda has diverse, rich and unique natural and cultural heritage - body of knowledge, traditions, customs, skills, values, dance, music, language and crafts that define peoples, communities and nations. These traditional customs and lifestyles are still alive in many parts of Uganda, offering the potential to enhance the depth and range of the tourist experience and their understanding of the culture and heritage of the country. However, Uganda is largely known for nature-based products. Other products such as intangible cultural heritage do not play a remarkable role in Uganda’s tourism offering.
To tap into this latent resource, the Uganda Tourism Development Master Plan 2014 – 2024 proposes for Government to partner with cultural institutions and the private sector to develop both tangible cultural assets (such as palaces, royal burial grounds) and intangible traditions (such as festivals, music, dance, and food) into viable tourism products that package and expose their cultural heritage.
As part of the efforts to stimulate recovery and build the resilience of Uganda’s tourism industry as well as contribute to Uganda realizing her full potential as a tourism destination, UNDP is in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism, Wildlife, and Antiquities, seeking the services of a competent firm to support targeted cultural institutions in developing their intangible cultural heritage into commercially viable signature cultural tourism festivals.
UNDP Uganda is seeking to hire a qualified Consultancy Firm to Support the Development and Piloting of Three Cultural Tourism Products In Uganda.
