The Savannaland Destination Tourism Programme is a United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) and Sustainable Tourism Eliminating Poverty (ST-EP) funded project that aims at improving household income levels by strengthening local capacity to develop, promote, market, manage, and sustain tourism investments in the Northern, Upper East and Upper W est regions of Ghana. The project is particularly important because despite the unique and authentic cultural, historical, and ecological wealth of the three regions, their natural potentials have not benefited them much economically .

The programme has targeted 300 direct actor households with indirect effect on 756 households. The destination is home to the largest bio diverse protected area in Ghana, Mole National Park.

Key stakeholders on this project include the Northern Regional Security Council, Mole National Park, West Gonja District Assembly, Bole District Assembly, Sawla –Tuna/Kalba District Assembly, Ghana Tourist Board, Destination Management Board, A Rocha Ghana, SNV and RUSODEF.
