Technical Cooperation to the Process of Formulation of the Strategic Plan of Territorial Organization for the Metropolitan Area of Bucaramanga
1 Jul 2017 - 28 Feb 2018

UNCRD has re-started the work of Integrated Regional Development Planning (IRDP) in Latin America. There is a growing demand and interest of Latin American countries to implement IRDP in their efforts towards sustainable development. It was therefore planned to start a project in Colombia, which could provide useful insights to other countries in implementing the IRDP. UNCRD has initiated a technical cooperation for the Metropolitan Area of Bucaramanga: Technical Cooperation to the Process of Formulation of the Strategic Plan of Territorial Organization for the Metropolitan Area of Bucaramanga (PEMOT, Spanish acronym), which is the second largest metropolitan area in Colombia, comprising of four municipalities of Bucaramanga, Piedecuesta, Giron and Floridablanca.
