OUR CHARTER

CHARTER OF SUSTAINABLE TOURISM

1. Tourism development must be based on sustainability criteria, which means it must be ecologically bearable in the long term, economically viable and equitable ethically and socially for local communities. Sustainable development is a guided process which envisages global management of resources to ensure their viability, thus preserving our natural and cultural capital, including protected areas. As powerful development tool, tourism can and should participate actively in the sustainable development strategy. One of the conditions for good tourism management is to ensure the sustainability of resources on which it depends.
