Continuation of workshop/meeting series (6 workshops) under the Human Security Assessment project as input to the Social Management Plan for the Territorial Recovery of the Area of Influence of the Open Waste Disposal Dump of the City of Bogotá “Doña Juan
1 Aug 2010 - 14 Nov 2010The outcomes of project on Human Security Assessment undertaken in the Bogotá-Cundinamarca Region from 2006 to 2008, generated the interest of the Special Administrative Unit of Public Services of Bogotá (UAESP, Spanish Acronym), which requested technical assistance from UNCRD-LAC to apply the Human Security Assessments methodology in analyzing the conditions of vulnerability in communities affected by the open waste disposal dump of Bogotá (called "Doña Juana") as an input in the formulation of the Social Management Plan for the Territorial Recovery of its area of influence.
A variety of complementary activities were developed as part of this initiative such as meetings and training workshops, aimed at building a common vision of the future of the area, and identifying actions to reduce/eliminate the threats that undermine the security of the people, and for the territorial, social, environmental and economic recovery of the area, to be included in the Social Management Plan.
Under this technical assistance framework established with the UAESP, UNCRD has been supporting the implementation of the first phase of the Social Management Plan of the Area of Influence of the Open Waste Disposal Dump of Bogota, Colombia, that includes two main aspects in which the workshop/meeting series are focusing: (1) strengthening training and capacity building of UAESP staff members on human security issues to take appropriation of the concept, and enhance their skills to attain a more efficient implementation of the plan; and (2) monitoring and evaluating the advances of the implementation of the Management Plan.
UNCRD will continue supporting this process until 2012.
Attendance: A group of 6 public officials staff members of the UAESP responsible for the implementation of the Social Management Plan of the Area of Influence of the Open Waste Disposal Dump of Bogota, Colombia.
