A. Project Title:
Support to the Institutional Development of Oé-Cusse Special Administrative Region and Special Zones of Social Market Economy (ZEESM).
B. Project Description
The constitution RDTL provides a special status to Oé-Cusse, stating that it shall be ‘governed by a special administrative policy and economic regime’ (Article 71, Clause 2) and a law on Oé-Cusse has recently been approved by the National Parliament.
UNDP has been providing Policy advice to the Special Economic Zone for Social Market Economy (ZEESM TL) Office since its establishment, and has developed a program to support ZEESM TL conceive, establish and support governance and sustainable and innovative development structures and systems in Oé-Cusse. The framework for UNDP’s support to Oé-Cusse ZEESM TL is built around two components: (i) governance (ii) sustainable and innovative development. Thus, as part of the roll out process of ZEESM TL, there is a need to formulate policies and provide high quality advice to support priority areas that have clear and strong forward linkages to the ZEESM TL. The proposed assistance is aligned with the priorities of the Fifth Constitutional Government as articulated under Timor-Leste Strategic Development Plan 2011-2030, to establish special zones of social market economy, to transform the lives of the people of Oé-Cusse with an integrated approach to sustainable social and economic development.
Community-Based Tourism (CBT) is one of the three strategic ZEESM-TL pillars for development in Oé-Cusse. The Regional Secretary of Community Tourism seeks to create a simple community-based tourism framework, by identifying potential tourism sites (within the larger areas provided in the master plan) and planning and proposing pilot activities to showcase Oé-Cusse’s community-based tourism to the emerging national market and also to integrate it in an international market.
During all this process, a good communication must be a central pillar who will allow us to reach the goal of attracting more people to Oé-Cusse and increase the information available about the region. However, the communication should not only be focused in an external level with the creation of promotional brochures, articles or press releases, but also in an internal level to reach an ideal coordination with the local communities and all the stakeholders and thus take a full advantage of everything the region can offer.
