Over 100 representatives from local communities have actively participated in tourism workshops organized by ZEESM in collaboration with UNDP to promote community-based tourism in the region.
This work constitutes the first phase of an ambitious project that will develop two travel packages in Fonte Sagrada and Oesilo areas. UNDP is supporting the Secretary of Tourism in Oé-cusse to implement participative, bottom-up methodology to promote community-based tourism.
Two working groups have been created to promote tourism attractions in Fonte Sagrada and Oesilo which allow tourists to discover local habitats and wildlife, while at the same time celebrating and respecting traditional cultures.
Development of Community Based Tourism is integrated with the Oé-Cusse Business Incubator OBI program to encourage local people to engage in the development of their Sucos.
