UNCRD facilitated an inter-municipal consultation process between Bogotá and its neighboring municipalities, commonly referred to as “Bordering Municipalities”. A series of seven workshops were held, aimed at formulating a Regional Comprehensive Plan for Security and Civilian coexistence (Plan Integral Regional de Seguridad y Convivencia Ciudadana), which had the participation of the authorities and entities responsible of civilian security and coexistence, such as mayors, government secretary, police officials, and army officials among others.

The meetings enabled achieving a common understanding about sources of urban violence, and specific locations. Albeit the discussions were originally limited to discussing citizen security-related issues, the discussions also involved other important issues, as environmental aspects, waste management, river pollution and territorial planning.

The workshops facilitated consensus building among the governments of the territory, which served as the basis to formulate an action plan on the subject.

Participants:Approx. 160 participants comprising officials of Bogota, and its surrounding municipalities attended 6 workshops with participation of 20 to 30 persons/each

Co-organizers: Bogotá´s Planning Secretariat
