CORZO-AREVALO, Daniel. A guideline proposal to formulate an environmental policy for tourism in the Topocoro reservoir in Colombia. Rev. interam. ambient. tur. [online]. 2020, vol.16, n.1, pp.2-14. ISSN 0717-6651.

Reservoirs may have the potential to develop tourist activity that benefits local communities, though this requires an environmental policy that allows and regulates their proper use and exploitation without affecting the territory's own elements on a large scale. This document identifies the main items that should form the environmental policy for tourism in the Topocoro reservoir, or any other reservoir with tourist potential. As a preamble to the study, a precise definition of sustainable tourism is offered, the challenges of generating an environmental policy for tourism in the face of the exploitation-preservation dichotomy are described, the importance of the state as a regulatory entity is emphasized, and finally some guidelines are established for the formulation of this environmental policy in the Sogamoso hydroelectric plant.

Keywords : Sustainable tourism; reservoirs; environmental policy; Topocoro; Hidrosogamoso.
