The tourism sustainability destination also stands out in the Plan. The Commonwealth of Municipalities of the Campo de Gibraltar, with 2,500,000 euros, has been one of the beneficiaries thanks to its work towards contributing to the formulation of a new tourism model that places sustainability in its triple dimension: environmental, socio-economic, and territorial.
