Neighbourhood Integrated Redevelopment Upgrading And Comprehensive Urban Planning In Cuenca, Ecuador

During the first phase of the project, it aimed to apply the knowledge and methodologies related to the NAU in order to improve the neighborhoods of the participating municipalities. Therefore, the project sought to provide technical assistant through urban planning and design instruments which will focus on the integral redevelopment of peripheral neighborhoods.

Moreover, the neglected environmental conditions in peripheral areas due to the lack of services and inefficient planning instruments obligate the project to adopt a multidisciplinary approach to face the challenges related with these circumstances: climate change, pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, and resilience.

During the second phase of the project, the aim is to combine technical, financial and legal efforts to provide to the Municipal GAD of Cuenca with the capacities and necessary tools for an adequate management and use of its territory. The approval of the LOOTUGS and the principles established in the NAU establish optimal conditions for the formulation of planning instruments for the adequate management and use of urban territories. In this specific context, for the formulation of the Land Use and Management Plan for the city of Cuenca.
