USAID/Uganda Tourism for Biodiversity Program

The Executive Director met with the Chief of Party on Friday, 5th April 2013. The USAID–STAR project that started in 2009 and ended in 2012 had offered to support UHOA in development of strategic plan and implementation of certain strategies. The support was lost as the project closed prior to completion of the strategic plan, however, the current project, USAID/Uganda Tourism for Biodiversity Program is ready to reconsider support to UHOA and this will be discussed in July 2013.

Areas to consider will include, among others:

    Marketing tourism;
    Strengthening synergies/linkages among all stakeholders; and
    Increase in investments whereby opportunity will be offered for hotel/lodging facilities in tourism destination areas in Uganda.
