Resilience in tourism 
The COVID-19 pandemic brought tourism worldwide to a standstill. What are the factors that help to increase resilience in this sector? Sustainability in tourism means not only implementing an environmental project or drawing up a green business plan. Sustainability in tourism is much more about linking tourism development with approaches to renovate the sector from the ground up. This in turn makes regional economies and tourist destinations more resistant to economic adversity.

Our Interventions

In collaboration with our local partners and by strengthening the local structures, Swisscontact applies a gender equity approach focusing on youth and women. To reduce poverty, generate income, and create new jobs, sustainability of project implementation is a central priority for Swisscontact. 

With its interventions, Swisscontact is facing the challenges of under- and unemployment in Morocco by facilitating skills development, targeted training, and better opportunities for employment, primarily through capacity building of small businesses. 

The abilities and readiness for action of our employees are decisive for our projects’ ability to achieve sustainable impact, as well as our long-term success. As an attractive employer, Swisscontact invests in a positive management and work culture. This is defined by our fundamental understanding of development intended to serve not only our beneficiaries in project countries but our employees as well.
In a nutshell
Motivated and productive employees with initiative constitute the most important success factor in all areas of our work. We count on individuals who are looking to the future, impact- and team-oriented, and want to work in international development cooperation.
