Foro Urbano Nacional – Memorias

Foro Urbano Nacional – Memorias

En Ecuador, de acuerdo a datos del último censo, más del 62% de la población se concentra en las áreas urbanas. Sin embargo, el acelerado proceso de crecimiento urbano, sumado a la falta de políticas urbanas eficientes, ha derivado en la generación de ciudades inequitativas y excluyentes. Por eso, es necesario modificar esta tendencia y asumir colectivamente la responsabilidad en la construcción de ciudades incluyentes, planificadas, ordenadas, seguras y equitativas de manera integral. En el marco de este proceso de transformación, el Gobierno Nacional ha colocado en la agenda pública la Revolución Urbana como una de las principales líneas de trabajo, enfatizando la importancia de la planificación urbanística, el ordenamiento territorial y la gestión del suelo dentro de las políticas urbanas.

What Land Means to Youth

What Land Means to Youth

Today, there are more than 1.2 billion youth in the world, the largest number of youth ever to have existed. These youth live, by and large, in cities and towns; the cities of the developing world account for over 90 per cent of the world’s urban growth and youth account for a large percentage of those inhabitants. It is estimated that as many as 60 per cent of all urban dwellers will be under the age of 18 by 2030. This urban demographic “youth bulge” represents both a challenge as well as an untapped potential in moving the land rights and tenure security agenda forward. Youth are increasingly mobile, social and creative in a rapidly transforming world. This means that the needs and attitudes toward land are changing too. More info →
