Destination Management Organisation (DMO)


  • A minimum of seven ecotourism destinations recognized by the Romanian National Authority for Tourism (ANT) who implement a coherent policy for ecotourism development and promotion.
  • Each ecotourism destination is coordinated by a DMO, which in turn belongs to a DMO network coordinated by AER; AER becomes a permanent partner for ANT in developing and promoting ecotourism in Romania.
  • Each local DMO:
    – is recognized and treated as the destination manager by all local public and private stakeholders;
    – is able to plan, coordinate and implement local ecotourism policy;
    – runs on a functional financial mechanism.
