Articulation of Territorial Development Plans of 4 Pilot Municipalities in the Bogotá-Sabana Region
22 Feb 2011 - 1 Apr 2011Since 2009, UNCRD-LAC supports 25 municipalities that surround the City of Bogotá in the revision, adjustment, and harmonization of their territorial and land-use plans to address fundamental social, economic, and environmental issues that require an interjurisdictional common understanding and collaboration between the territories.
As part of this process, during the first semester of 2011 UNCRD-LAC continued supporting and facilitating the exchange of information and discussions for the articulation of Territorial Development Plans of the municipalities of Cundinamarca with the implementation of a series of workshops and meetings. During this semester workshops/meetings focused on promoting cooperation efforts among regional stakeholders to build a common regional agenda on territorial planning and public finances to guide the articulation of the territorial development plans of Bogotá and 25 surrounding municipalities, emphasizing on ecological, functional, social, economic, spatial, institutional and fiscal aspects.
Four Workshop/Meetings were implemented in collaboration with the City of Bogotá and the Departamento of Cundinamarca, one for each pilot municipality in the Bogotá-Sabana region: Facatativá, Zipaquirá, La Calera and Tabio.
A series of guidelines/methodologies where developed based on the 2 year work, aimed at building a common regional agenda on territorial planning and public finances to guide the articulation of the territorial development plans of these municipalities.
These guidelines will be further developed in a manual to be used by interested municipalities in Colombia and other regions of Latin America and the Caribbean countries.
Attendance: 15 public officials of four selected municipalities
