Lima

Collaborative urban planning towards a fairer and more resilient metropolis

city project

PUCP and its NGO partners in Lima are undertaking an action research project that works with social, political and community actors to make visible, understand, and transform the dynamics that generate and maintain inequality between social groups in the city. 

 

 

The project co-designs, tests and disseminates urban strategies and public policy proposals to contribute to greater equity at the local and metropolitan levels. 

The project combines research and advocacy with co-design, implementation and evaluation of urban strategies in two representative areas with precarious conditions and risks in which the majority of the poorest families in the city live. It seeks to consolidate relations with civil society and the public and private sector for the generation of an action research network focused on reducing urban inequalities.
