USAID’s Tourism for All


Long Term






1.               Background
The vision behind USAID’s investment in the tourism sector through USAID’s Tourism for All project (Tetun: USAID nia Projetu Turizmu Ba Ema Hotu) is to promote Timor-Leste’s competitiveness as an international tourism destination while preserving its unique environmental and cultural heritage. The purpose of this activity is to expand and improve Timor-Leste’s tourism offerings using an inclusive and sustainable approach. The aim is to facilitate private investment by working with government to establish incentives and obligations that are more private sector-friendly, promote steady and sustainable tourism growth, and safeguard the environment and social characteristics of local communities. The Timor-Leste Strategic Development Plan 2011-2030 identifies five different tourism niches including: eco and marine, historical and cultural, adventure and sports, religious and pilgrimage, and conference and convention. While there are a variety of ways to characterize these niches, the project will focus on niches and products to augment receipts to the local economy.
The project is expected to learn from and adapt to changing circumstances throughout implementation, including market forces, which can result in shifts in selected niches or products when warranted. It will be important to consider both private sector investment on private land and also how to create favorable conditions for private sector investment in and management of public assets such as protected natural or cultural sites. Through USAID’s tourism project, Chemonics must implement the solution accepted by USAID that contributes to measurable improvements in receipts derived from the tourism sector in Timor-Leste.
