Community-based tourism organizations seek legal status
The Gerardo Cordero y León Legal Office of the University of Cuenca has been able to provide free legal advice so that two pilots of the project: Fostering a platform for research-based education to support sustainable development through Tourism in the Cajas Massif Biosphere Area (CMBA), Migüir and Sayausí Rural Tourism can obtain their legal status.
Several coordination meetings have been held between the project team, the legal team and the representatives of the associations. A fifth year law student will carry out all the respective procedures as part of her pre-professional internship with the supervision of the Gerardo Cordero y León Legal Office.
The associations are looking for regulated associations that will allow them to improve their internal organization with a view to development through tourism. We will soon have more news of this process.
