Strategic and Institutional Recommendations for Namibia's National Sustainable Tourism Growth Strategy

The Government of Namibia (Ministry of Environment and Tourism) has produced an innovative and ambitious tourism growth strategy towards 2030.  In designing the strategy the Ministry enlisted the participation of all key stakeholders, who agreed on interventions for achieving sustainable tourism growth.  We were requested to evaluate the draft strategy and provide a feedback report regarding the strategic direction, key gaps and the insitutional capacity required to execute it.  The assessment also entailed an evaluation of Namibia's national tourism institutions, benchmarking these with institutional arrangements in other SADC countries, specifying the roles and responsibilities of the Department of Tourism and the Namibia Tourism Board and recommending a functional structure for the Ministry.
