The Tourism Sustainability

The third extraordinary call for applications for the Tourism Sustainability Plans in Destinations, agreed by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism and the regional governments at the Sector Conference on 27 January, and endowed with 478 million euros from the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, is now underway.

The Secretary of State for Tourism has set up a specific section in the ministry’s electronic headquarters from which applications will have to be processed, with online forms and instructions for completing them, and where municipalities and other local entities will be able to consult all the documentation with information relating to this third extraordinary call for applications.

The initiatives of the local entities will be evaluated jointly by the Secretary of State for Tourism and the autonomous communities in which they are located. The regional governments may also apply for these funds through Cohesion Actions in the Destinations of their respective territories. These projects must be sent through the electronic registry of the Secretary of State for Tourism.

In the last extraordinary call, that of 2022, more than 500 proposals were submitted, of which 196 were selected. Of the latter, 175 were promoted by local entities. The remaining 21 projects corresponded to Cohesion Actions in Destinations presented by the different autonomous communities.

These additional 478 million to improve national tourism are in addition to the 660 million dedicated to the same purpose in 2021 and the 720 million of last year’s edition. In total, 1,858 million have already been allocated to these projects, which prioritise environmental sustainability and digitalisation with the aim of achieving more competitive and higher quality tourism.
