Eco Province: Arauco in Chile

Ecomunicipality 5.0 is the basic framework for the development of the tourism and a sustainable destination in the province of Arauco in Chile. This is done in a 2 year project between 2014 – 2016.

The project seeks to promote the development of sustainable tourism destinations in the province of Arauco in Chile. This is done through adaptation, transferring and implementation of a model of public-private management based on the experience of ecomunicipalities in Sweden and this is adapted to the social and institutional conditions of Chile. By generating a shared vision and agenda for the development of sustainable destinations in the province of Arauco, the project seeks to align government, business, academic and social initiatives, creating institutional arrangements that reduce information asymmetries and diminish uncertainties.
