Panel 4 Funding opportunities

What funding programmes already exist for women empowering projects? What traditional and non-traditional funding sources are there available for women entrepreneurs? How can we attract ODA funding through international development institutions?

Despite increasing awareness of tourism’s contribution to development, tourism only accounts to 0, 17% of Official Development Assistance and is therefore underrepresented in international aid flows. As of July 2017, UNWTO features on the OECD’s list of development assistance organizations.

Panel will focus on:

  • How to get funding for women empowering projects through international development organizations
  • Attracting ODA funding from development institutions through UNWTO
