Panel/Charrette Promotion of Integrated Regional Development Planning and Management for an Equitable, Balanced and Sustainable Development.
12 Jul 2015 - 17 Jul 2015
Bogota, Colombia

During six days, regional actors and national and international experts analyzed the Cundinamarca territory from different perspectives, and made proposals on key factors that should constitute the strategic agenda for the future integrated territorial planning of Cundinamarca. The results were presented at a Forum on 17 July. Multiple working sessions were held with public officials, national, superregional, regional and local authorities, environmental organizations, provinces, private sector, civil society and the academia, among others. The discussions centered on Cundinamarcas future vision, towards a secure territory in social, ecological, economic, food, legal/institutional, energetic and cultural terms, following sustainable development policy.

A multistakeholder dialogue committee will be constituted in the following weeks with key leaders and representatives of the territory to continue the strategic planning process, to define the vision, agenda and projects, and the guidelines of territorial planning which will be presented to the Departmental Assembly in October, 2015. This project is expected to be a case for replication for other regions in Colombia that are facing similar territorial planning challenges, in the context of the Ley Organica de Ordenamiento Territorial (Organic Law on Territorial Planning) issued by the national government in 2011.
