How do we implement the PPPP?
One of the most commonly used models in public-private people’s partnerships in nature tourism, particularly in protected areas, is the concession lease model. A private tourism lease is an agreement concluded between a private company ("Leaseholder") and the manager of the protected area to operate a tourism company within a specified area of a protected area in exchange for fees.
The leaseholder is responsible for taking over existing facilities and performing upgrades and / or building new facilities. At the end of the lease-period, the ownership of all infrastructures goes back to the protected area agency, in this case STINASU. The leaseholder assumes full responsibility for the operation and maintenance of all assets, as well as for the financing and management of all required investments during the time horizon of the lease.
The PPPP is guided by the general terms and conditions of the private tourism concession lease. The recommended general conditions for the proposed PPPP model for the Brownsberg Nature Park Plateau will be set out in a report.
