What advantages will the communities gain from the project?
This plan wants the communities which are located near the paths, to organise and undertake sustainable tourism which will help to preserve the natural beauty of the Senderos de Chile routes. Communities will be allocated funds as an incentive to undertake micro projects.
The communities receive an economic and technical livelihood which was established in 2004 as a result of a Cooperation Agreement between CONAMA and the United Nations Program for Development PNUD, and the Small Subsidies Program PPS, from the GEF (the Global Environmental Fund)
All of this is intended to have a positive impact on each district and encourage more areas to join the project.
The projects which have been submitted are related to improvements in infrastructure such as; tourist stopover points, tourist help centres, new path routes, signs and various other services.
