ROLE OF THE LAW IN ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT,
Date to be determined
This graduate course has, as its new guide, a class program developed at the Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and shaped by the professor Víctor Amaury Simental Franco in the book “Environmental Law”, published in 2010.
As the laws and cases in Mexico are different from the Dominicans, this program was adapted to the environment and legislation of the country. As you will note, there has been a substantial change in the themes and content of the program, provoked by previous graduate courses that have been developed, in which the need to strengthen the conceptual part throughout the environmental system and in the type of tourism that must be developed in the Dominican Republic to ensure sustainable development.
Environmental Law in the Dominican Republic is very recent, and that is one of the reasons why concepts are still not widely used and sometimes not in the right way, that is why it is necessary to develop more comprehensive and explanatory environmental concepts that are handled at national and international level.
Although the country has one of the most advanced environmental laws in Latin America and the world since year 2000, its application is in its infancy, mainly in the educational mandate, since in its article 56 and subsequent, provide for the compulsory and transversal nature of environmental education at all levels, however, the Dominican State lacks a policy of environmental education that allows Dominicans to know and understand better the functions and importance of preserving the ecosystems.
The Dominican Republic is a country privileged by its natural characteristics that allows them to be of the most coveted destinations in the Caribbean to be visited.
Tourism is considered one of the main lines that contributes most to the gross domestic product of the country, making it a priority for the Dominican government.
Given that tourism is nourished by natural resources, there is a direct relationship with the use of natural resources, it is necessary to ensure that this exploitation is carried out with due controls to ensure sustainable development.
Although the Dominican Republic is eminently touristic because of its natural, cultural, gastronomic and historical conditions, it has not been able to offer or commercialize its potential in a proper way, so that in this graduate course the historical part of tourism, advances and problems will be developed, as well as possible solutions proposed for sustainable tourism.
In this graduate course, 7 units are developed in which the participant, upon reaching the end, is able to hold discussions and exercise law, environmental management and tourism in the Dominican Republic with academic and professional quality, due to the characteristics of the design and way in how to facilitate learning in this course that is based on real and fictitious practical cases that will be built and developed in and outside the classroom.
