CONSULTANCY FIRM TO PREPARE OF TOURISM PROFILES AND DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIES AND PLANS FOR SELECTED AREAS IN UGANDA

Background

Uganda is endowed with a wide range of tourism resources, including rich biodiversity, varied landscapes, and a diverse cultural and religious heritage. It is home to over 53.9 per cent of the world’s mountain gorilla population, 7.8 per cent of the world’s mammal species, 11 per cent of the world’s bird species, spectacular mountain ranges including the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountain ranges; and pristine crater lakes and water bodies including Lake Victoria – the second largest freshwater lake in the world, as well as the source of the River Nile, the world’s longest river.

Before the advent of the Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic in December 2019, tourism was one of the fastest-growing industries in Uganda and the leading foreign exchange earner driving socio-economic development and job creation. In 2019, the sector accounted for 6.2 per cent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), employed 589,300 people (3.6 per cent of total employment) many of whom were youth, women, and vulnerable communities working in the informal economy, and generated over USD 1.7 billion in foreign exchange and contributed an equivalent of 16.6 per cent of total exports.

UNDP has partnered with the Ministry of Tourism, Wildlife and Antiquities (MTWA), Uganda Tourism Board (UTB), the private sector, and several Cultural Institutions to mitigate the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic on businesses, jobs, and livelihoods through catalytic actions intended to stimulate recovery and build a resilient tourism industry in Uganda. These include the co-creation of integrated and localized solutions, approaches, and tools to accelerate efforts to enable youth/women-owned micro, small and medium enterprises to recover from the impact of COVID-19; and promote innovation as a catalyst for inclusive growth and transformation.
