Occopata in Numbers
The measurement taken in 2018 revealed major challenges for the development of the community.
Nine Lines of Action
The model has nine lines of action, focusing on production and tourism as potential sources of family income. These are supported by the education, health, infrastructure, and environment lines of action. The preceding lines are complemented by the lines of culture and governance. Lastly, there is the support provided by our university for articulation with other players.
We consider tourism to be a driver of development through entrepreneurial undertakings that draw tourists to the community, as well as through products that can be offered to tourists in the region, along with improvement in public services and the acquisition of new technologies.

The community can be brought closer in different ways, such as through donations, social and professional volunteering, courses that may or may not include travel, internships, teaching, theses, scientific research, and other activities through partnerships and management.
