The CAMINMAC ("Activities for the development and dissemination of a network of signposted trails, in line with the principles of the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas") project is part of the MAC Transnational Cooperation Programme 2007-2013.

The project responds to the need to strengthen economic and business networks through exchanges and internationalization

It improves the network of trails for tourist use, from a safety and conservation standpoint, driving socioeconomic development by strengthening sustainable ecotourism activities around them. More specifically, it aims to:

  • Identify the risks and establish a method to evaluate and define preventive and remedial measures All natural and historic sites on the network of trails will be identified and published
  • Encourage sustainable tourism within the Nature Preserves, and make it known throughout the business community, to promote the creation of new services related to sustainable tourism and ecotourism products.
  • Build collaborative synergies, in order to transfer knowledge gained to the participating countries and serve as pilot experiences for other European destinations.

The geographical areas covered by the project are the islands of Tenerife, Madeira and Cape Verde.

The total approved budget for the project is € 238,797.89, of which € 192,829.30 are provided by ERDF funds. Its deadline ends December 31, 2015.
