The governance of collaborative agreements among different levels of government is a new subject that has not been sufficiently studied by the literature. Aiming to contribute to a better knowledge of this management tool, this paper identifies two models of governance, analyzing tourism and accessibility policies in order to comprehend their dynamics. The analysis shows that the participative model allows the different governmental actors to take responsibilities in the management of the projects, being thus more effective for policies of tourism. The study also shows that the hierarchical model has a stronger presence of the central institutions, being more appropriate for focused policies such as accessibility for disable people. It is a compared study that draws interesting conclusions which might be useful for Latin American countries.
