4 iv Presentation Green Tourism represents a opportunity to promote the appreciation and the value of our protected areas and to generate economic benefits to the communities, in collaboration with the private sector. It also increases revenues in protected areas so that they can be reinvested in their conservation and management, as well as in the prevention and mitigation of negative impacts that may be generated. In addition, it can be a dynamic element in the rural communities of the country, particularly benefiting young people and women. Whose mission is low impact sustainable development, that supports the conservation efforts and optimizes the socio-economic benefits to the population, assuring the tourist competitiveness under a shared and effective leadership.
