Workshop Approach
By understanding three different narratives this approach aims to focus on providing the path to develop strategies for delivering specific projects or achieve particular objectives through the exploration of new roles and consensus in a public – community partnership.

Illustration 1 Approach to build up a common ground

  • The intervention requires guaranteeing the inhabitants permanence in the territory
  • Any intervention or process involves the generation of agreements with the local communities and its organizations.
  • The intervention in the metropolitan border is only one component of policy of growth management (multiscale and multidimenctional)  

Illustration 2 Participatory management Model[1]

Outlined from the proposals established by the Planning and Management Council of Commune 8 (CPG):

  1. Risk management (gestión del riesgo)
  2. Access to affrodable public utilities (acsequiblilidad a servicios públicos)
  3. Generation of income sources and food security (livelihoods and exchange capabilities) (Generación de ingresos, capacidad de intercambio y seguridad alimentaria)
  4. Promote Integral Barrio Upgrading -habitat and housing, public space, mobility and public facilities (Promoción de mejoramiento integral de barrios)
  5. Implement a public – community partnership management scheme (Implementación de un esquema de gestión de asociación póblico comunitario)
