replicable in other areas with similar conditions. The main
components of the strategy focus on: strengthening community
participation; inter-institutional coordination and coresponsibility;
providing housing, public buildings, public
spaces and mobility; environmental restoration; and implementing
social development projects. The programs are put
into action with the assistance of other institutions such as
various public entities, the Ministry of Housing and Environment,
NGOs, local community-based organizations, and
private companies. All these tangible interventions are instigated
using participatory decision making processes, social
development and capacity-building activities to enhance
leadership.
The project also constructs safe public spaces to address
urban violence, and provide areas for social exchange and
meeting. Implementation of new public buildings such as
libraries, business development centers, and sports facilities;
and also the improvement of existing schools, medical
centers and other services that contribute to social development
and the alleviation of poverty.
The IUP also addresses the restoration and preservation of
the environment to lower the risk of natural disasters and
to achieve environmental sustainability. On a global level
the IUP contributes to reduce the worldwide problem of
slum formation in urban areas, and aims to achieve the Millennium
Development Goals: eradication of extreme poverty
and environmental sustainability.
