Terms of Reference

Consultancy for Preparation of the Africa Tourism Monitor 2019

 

  1. Background :

In the fifth edition of the Africa Tourism Monitor, we highlighted the AfDB’s High 5s, where we examined “Tourism as a Pathway to Industrialization, Integration, Quality of Life, Agriculture, and Powering up Africa.” The publication featured the most recent data on tourism’s catalyzing impact on global and African economies.

In 2016, international tourism arrivals reached the highest levels to date with 1.239 billion arrivals, a 3.9% increase from 2015. As global tourism increases year over year, we are delighted to report that African tourism is on the rise once again, after years in decline. In 2016, Africa’s tourist arrivals increased to 62.9 million, up modestly from 62.5 million in 2015 (a 0.64% increase); this is a 5.1% share in worldwide tourism arrivals. In 2016, global tourism receipts totaled US$ 1.225 trillion. International tourism receipts in Africa totaled US$ 36.2 billion in 2016, comprising 3% of global tourism receipts.

Tourism significantly adds to employment gains on the continent, and provides tremendous opportunities for skills development and advancement. Direct travel and tourism employment in Africa increased to 9.3 million (2.6% of total employment), with 6.8 million jobs in sub- Saharan Africa and 2.5 million jobs in North Africa in 2017. Globally, tourism accounts for 3.8% of direct employment as a percentage of total employment, compared to 2.6% in Africa, 4.4% in North Africa, and 2.3% in sub-Saharan Africa.

In 2017, total tourism employment in Africa also experienced a steady rise, where travel and tourism jobs accounted for 6.5% of total employment of 22.8 million jobs (including direct, indirect, and induced employment); this includes 17.2 million jobs in sub-Saharan Africa, and 5.6 million jobs in North Africa.1

With tourism on the rise in Africa, it is critical to draw on the collaboration and expertise of public and private sector practitioners to shape the development of the travel and tourism sector for sustainable growth. The Bank must also continue to lead the way in these efforts. In the 2019 Africa Tourism Monitor, we plan to highlight regional integration in tourism as a driver for Africa’s economic growth.

  1. Objectives :

The long-term objective of this assignment is to build upon the earlier work of the Africa Tourism Monitor. The first step is to produce the sixth and subsequent editions of the publication that will continue to advance the African tourism sector while also making recommendations to boost tourism on the continent. By renewing this agreement, we seek to strengthen the data collection already completed and further expand outreach efforts to generate more traffic to the Data Portal site to highlight the role of the Bank as a knowledge center and resource for tourism data.

Additionally, we seek to engage African Tourism Ministries, Government Agencies, and Private Sector Leaders to ensure a lasting and far-reaching impact on the transformation of the tourism sector. Tourism remains a significant sector for the African economy for job creation, economic growth, and sustainable development. We will do this through providing data and Africa Tourism Monitor, vol. 5 (African Development Bank, 2018), 4-5. concrete case studies highlighted in the Africa Tourism Monitor.

Finally, our work will emphasize the benefits of tourism at the country and regional levels by assisting nations in developing tourism policy frameworks and learning best practices from contributions by industry leaders.
