use planning in Puerto Lopez: Putting GIS to work on the ground
part of the Convenio Colombia, this work has developed a framework
and mapping tools to lead towards the development of long-term
(POT) and shorter-term (PDM) land use plans. While remaining
strongly participatory, this framework entrains a number of
technical contributions, including a multiple-scale vision-actions-request
framework, multi-temporal classified satellite imagery, GEOSOIL,
"Arboles de Decision" and ex ante assessment
of agricultural products. With CIAT's support, the municipality
of Puerto López developed a concerted plan that will
guide its activity and expenditures over the next 3 years.
The "PLAN DE DESARROLLO 2001-2004, "Por la Reconciliación
y Unidad de Puerto López" will be an instrument
to apply the "Plan Básico de Ordenamiento Territorial"
of Puerto López. The plan, ratified earlier this year,
will officially be launched o CD-ROM at the end of the year.
About 100 professionals have already been trained in plan
development and the use of MapMaker software.
Work conducted within the scope of the agreement between
CIAT and the Colombian Ministry of Agriculture:
