Leaders International 

Leaders International is an international network of local organizations that plans, manages, and monitors innovation and economic development interventions in the region. Through its offices in Brussels, Tunisia, Amman, and Ramallah, Leaders International provides complete project management services with a focus on private-sector development, enterprise development, job creation, entrepreneurship, D4D, economic policy dialogue, and tourism value chain development. 

Project Background

 Tunisia has been a popular tourist destination for Europeans for a long time, offering affordable all-  inclusive packages with flights and accommodations. European tour operators mainly focus on coastal   cities known for their beautiful beaches, sunny weather, and reasonably priced luxurious hotels.  However, in light of new global trends, Tunisia has started engaging in policy dialogues to reconsider its   tourism strategies. The aim is to promote new types of tourism that prioritize sustainable projects based   on cultural and environmental alternatives. The tourism industry in Tunisia urgently needs to improve and   diversify the quality of its offerings to meet the expectations and demands of new customers.  There is a growing market of travelers seeking nature and recreational/adventure experiences, which   provides an opportunity for Tunisia. These travelers are less affected by the region’s political unrest and   are primarily interested in engaging in outdoor activities to experience the natural attractions. This creates   economic benefits for local communities. 

 The current project acknowledges the challenges of alternative tourism and recognizes the potential of   Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) as key supporters of the sector.  

 This project is implemented by Leaders International in partnership with Museum Lab, funded by the   European Union. 

Objective 

The TANIT project aims to strengthen the role of CSOs in governance and advocacy for alternative  tourism in Tunisia. These CSOs, made up of local businesses and individuals, have established  credibility and provide strong support to SMEs involved in sustainable tourism. They are well connected  with local providers such as artisans, guesthouses, and outdoor sports organizers, and can play a key  role in promoting this sector and creating favorable public policies. The project is based on two main  axes: strengthening the capacities of CSOs to ensure their sustainability and their role in proposing  alternative tourism. 

Activity

Key  activities for this role entail conducting on-site visits, surveys, and in-depth research to pinpoint existing  organizations within the region and meticulously document their activities and initiatives. The mapping  expert will serve as a crucial conduit for enhancing the visibility of these organizations, constructing a  comprehensive database, and furnishing valuable insights to advance the development of sustainable  tourism and ecological practices within the specified regions.
