New frameworks for community-based cultural tourism
Conti, Alfredo Luis
Cultural heritage becomes an asset which allows widening the tourism offer or developing tourism in places where the activity had not been traditional. Local communities play a significant role in the development of tourism, especially in those cases where tourism is perceived as an instrument for local development. The implementation of community-based tourism requires planning and capacity building among all stakeholders. In this framework, the purpose of this paper is analysing a community-based tourism programme, Tourism Villages, implemented in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
