Community Sustainability and Tourism in the Pooled Towns Route, Oaxaca, Mexico

Jesús Gómez-Velázquez, Rosa María Velázquez-Sánchez, Abel Antonio Morales Santiago, and Armando Pérez Delgadillo
Abstract—Sustainability was defined as “the fact which meets the present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to satisfy their own needs.” There are a lot of tourist attractions with an incredible potential but without the promotion or development needed to be streamlined, such is the case of The Pooled Towns, a set of communities in the mountains in northern highlands of Oaxaca, Mexico. This research is aimed to analyze the characteristics of the tourism project mentioned and its relation with local development and community sustainability analysis from the Commonality perspective. The development dimensions and elements systematized in the available literature were analyzed and it will have an analytical scope and empirical knowledge generation. The relevance lies in the knowledge of the involvement of the people in developing alternative tourism and its impact on community sustainability.

Index Terms—Community sustainability, ecotourism, pooled, commonality.
