Government intends to use portion of the fund to
commission consultancy service that will propose a
conducive framework for private sector investment and
site allocation to project implementation. The
objective of this consultancy is to build up a legal,

regulate the rights and obligations of public
authorities competent for selecting, contracting and
managing contracts with the private sector interested in
developing tourism projects in the APITQs, excluding the
concessions for the exploitation of areas of public
domain. This will include, but not limited to, Legal
Diplomas and respective legal reasoning, standard Bid

legal regimes and instruments, particularly pertaining
to tourism and related fields, knowledge of the legal
framework in practice in Mozambique, proficiency in
Portuguese and English, good interpersonal and
facilitation skills as well as communications skills.
To have participated in the drafting of policies and
regulations in the field of tourism development in
Mozambique or in the region, knowledge of the
institutional framework of the public sector in
Mozambique, as well as participated in the drafting of
regulations for tourism concessions in conservation
areas and knowledge of basic conservation and
biodiversity management principles, constitute

Consultancy forms will be selected in accordance with
the procedures set out in the World BankQs Guidelines:
