Project Characteristics and Results
Policy Influence
As Botswana is grappling with dwindling interest in the Community Based Natural Resources Management (CBNRM) policy implementation, the project provides opportunity to pilot how a low scale tourism venture could operate in a City environment. The project process has also provided the Francistown City Council with a platform to discuss and understand potential benefits that could be derived from tourism of which there has been very little awareness. It is hoped that the information will influence them to have green policies in their future developments. This follows indications that some councilor’s deliberations have made the reports points of reference for the development of the City. Furthermore these reports will go a long way to advise similar processes in other areas, hence policy impacts.
Gender Focus
Deliberate gender sensitive measures would be developed to ensure equal and effective participation by both females and males in the project. Such measures would include the harmonization of the management structure of the project as well as enterprise development activities that are envisaged.
