Deturel – Development of Eco-tourism in the Lezha Region

The project “Development of Eco-Tourism in the Lezha Region (Deturel)” helped develop a tourism concept, designed an action plan for seasonal, ecological and sustainable tourism development and implemented it in cooperation with the local community and local institutions in Lezha. Deturel encouraged the development of health and safety standards for family tourism in guesthouses, as well as the development of intermediary stations for tourists that visit the area, by involving local resources and ensuring gender-balanced participation and impact. The project helped included rural areas of the Lezha region in the touristic offer of regional and national tour-operators, hence promoting and marketing a new tourism destination in the country and abroad.
