Peru and Chile pilot new global sustainable tourism criteria for destinations

Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu have been selected for the second round of the Global Sustainable Toruism Council (GSTC) ´s pilot program, to test its new Criteria and Indicators for Destinations. It is one of the first South American destinations to participate along with the shores of Lake Llanquihue, Puerto Varas, and Frutillar in the Lakes Region of Chile.

The GSTC´s Criteria for Destinations are designed to familiarize destination managers, communities and businesses with the steps needed to support their natural and cultural assets while at the same time assisting local communities.

The Criteria for Destinations are overseen by GSTC´s Destination working Group and managed by NGO Sustainable Travel International and will complement the existing GSTC Criteria for Hotels and Tour Operators.
