Worldwide Technical Cooperation Activities

Missions

Missions are carried out at the request of countries or groups of countries to identify, evaluate and describe their specific technical assistance needs and provide policy advice on the problems they are faced with. These missions are usually fielded for a short duration and result in further project proposals for funding and, in some cases, in direct UNWTO recommendations to Members which they can implement themselves.

Projects

Projects are usually of long duration and aim to assist Governments in acquiring technical know-how in formulation of tourism policies and strategies in planning, product development, marketing and human resource development.

The projects are based on a policy of sustainability and focus on tourism master planning at all levels, establishment of tourism training institutes, formulation and regulations, preparation of marketing programmes, and national capacity building.
