Abstract

In this article a proposal of territorial planning is presented from harmonic tourism as the factor that boosts sustainable development in the city of Toluca and the region of the Valley with the same name. In this proposal elements of “New Urbanism, Sustainability and Harmonic Tourism” are incorporated. Tourism is considered as the axis of the integral planning proposal from the programmatic framework of national development and values the propositions generated in the local sphere; it integrates economic sectors and social actors. The proposal highlights environmental services and natural resources that limit or favor human activities. Hence, tourism becomes an element that fosters local and regional economy. In this work the need to provide elements to rethink and build theoretical-methodological alternatives on development, sustainability and tourism is exposed; there is a brief environmental diagnosis of the urban zones in general, and of the Valley of Toluca and its metropolitan zone in particular; some reflections on sustainability, harmonic tourism and local development are presented, then, the fundaments to build a planning proposal for sustainable local development from harmonic tourism in the City of Toluca are exposed and finally the conclusions are stated.
