The European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas (CETS), is an instrument that can be likened to a certification pathway, enabling better management of protected areas for sustainable tourism development. The core element of CETS is collaboration among all stakeholders to develop a common strategy and action plan for tourism development, based on a thorough analysis of the local situation.

To adhere to CETS, interested parks are moving in three directions: choosing a strategic approach, adopting the ethos of sustainable tourism, and prioritizing partnership.

In other words, to adopt CETS is to concretely promote the approach of durable and sustainable tourism development.

Specifically: carry out a shared territorial diagnosis, consult and involve partners in the area, establish strategic goals for tourism promotion and territorial protection, and carry out a program of precise actions.

Adherence to the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism, as evidenced by numerous national and international experiences, makes it possible to harmonize and enhance the economic forces in the area and ensure an adequate quality of life for the local population.
