Training Workshops (2) to support the implementation of Phase 2 of the Social Management Plan for the Territorial Recovery of the Area of Influence of the Waste Landfill of the City of Bogotá “Doña Juana”
9 Mar 2011 - 26 Apr 2011The 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 second phase of the Social Management Plan for the Recovery of the Area of Influence of the Waste Landfill of the City of Bogotá “Doña Juana”, that includes training and capacity building of public officials responsible of the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the Social Management Plan for the territorial recovery of the area of influence of the open waste disposal dump of the city of Bogotá
UNCRD will continue supporting this process until 2012.
