World heritage site managers and tourism stakeholders from Zambia and Zimbabwe came together for the first time to initiate the process to develop a sustainable tourism strategy for the Mosi-oa-Tunya/Victoria Falls World Heritage site. The workshop was held in Livingstone, Zambia from 22 to 24 January 2015.
The workshop takes place within the framework of the UNESCO World Heritage and Sustainable Tourism Programme. A key goal of the project is to provide capacity building tools and strategies for site managers to help them manage tourism at their sites more sustainably. Victoria Falls is one of four priority Africa nature sites included in the initial phase of the project. Others sites include Maloti-Drakensberg Park in South Africa/Lesotho, Lake Malawi National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania.
