THE World Bank will spend $38m (sh66.8b) to develop tourism in 11 districts countrywide.
The policy and planning adviser of the World Bank-funded Protected Areas Management and Sustainable Use Project, David Abura-Ogwang, said this at Hotel Margherita in Kasese during a tourism workshop recently.
Districts to benefit are Kasese, Kanungu, Kabarole, Mbale, Masindi, Kisoro, Mpigi, Kampala, Kalangala, Rakai and Jinja.
Abura-Ogwang said developing tourism in Kasese and Kabarole would cost $100,000 (sh176m).
Planning involves identifying existing and potential tourism sites and facilities and choosing two major projects, which will be subjected to feasibility studies to establish their viability for funding. Planning in the 11 districts is expected to be completed by the end of August.
