The development objective of Tourism Development Project is to improve the performance of tourism in targeted destinations in Ghana. This project has four components. 1) The first component, Strengthening the tourism enabling environment, aims to address the following constraints most likely to have transformative impact on the tourism sector in Ghana: training and skills development of the industry, aviation and entry visa policy, and branding and marketing. 2) The second component, Developing tourism sites and destinations, seeks to diversify the leisure tourism offering in Ghana by identifying and upgrading the most promising destination areas. 3) The third component, Tourism enterprise support program, aims to finance the costs of tourism enterprise matching grants and business development services training. Qualified enterprises will be invited to submit proposals that will be evaluated for viability. 4) The fourth component, Project management and institutional strengthening, aims to provide support to Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MoTAC) to manage and coordinate the project.

The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing email@example.com.
