Abstract

The fast changing tourism industry requires a tracking method to update information on a timely basis. Our project assisted the Namibia Tourism Board in monitoring the industry's performance in four sectors: accommodations, vehicle rental and car hire, tour & safari, and trophy hunting. Through interviews, surveys, and the creation of a database, we developed a barometer to measure the industry's performance every two months and suggested a communication strategy to present the information to relevant stakeholders.
