Los bordes de la esperanza: nuevas formas de participación popular y gobiernos locales en la periferia de Caracas
Cariola,Cecilia; Lacabana,Miguel;
Revista Venezolana de Economía y Ciencias Sociales , 2005,
Abstract: this article examines changes occurring on the outskirts of metropolitan caracas, in the context of a sociopolitical conflict that confronts two visions of the country and two models of development, one based on the postulates of the washington consensus which has failed, and the other an emerging paradigm which has yet to clearly define its objective and is being constructed as it goes along. the new visibility of the lower-income groups after years of exclusion and territorial enclosure in the stigmatized slums of caracas and its periphery plays a major role in these changes. the city of caracas continues its metropolitan expansion and the tuy valleys are an area of intensive urban development, both regulated and unregulated, linked to the construction of a metropolitan commuter rail system and other public and private investments. impoverished middle-income groups live there, together with poor lower-income groups, on the edge of the city but also with the hope of improving their quality of life through the implementation of new public policies and different forms of community participation that point to a process of social inclusion and construction of citizenship.
?Se acabó el suelo en la gran ciudad?: Las nuevas periferias metropolitanas de la vivienda social en Santiago de Chile
Hidalgo Dattwyler,Rodrigo;
EURE (Santiago) , 2007, DOI: 10.4067/S0250-71612007000100004
Abstract: this paper analyses and interprets the socio-spatial effects of the construction of social housing in peripheral municipalities of the metropolitan region of santiago. the main results points to acknowledge that the allocation of low income families in sites that already exhibit disadvantageous conditions is creating a state-led precariopolis, characterized by social exclusion and new forms of inequality in comparison to the existing conditions in the last decades
Estrategias de sobrevivencia, modos de vida y heterogeneidad social en la interfase periurbana de caracas
Cuadernos del Cendes , 2003,
Abstract: the middle tuy valley is an area of the caracas metropolitan region undergoing rapid expansion in response to expectations for the construction of a metropolitan commuter rail system and in view of its suitability to house a major residential concentration of the new poor and vulnerable middle-income populations. this trend is increasing the area?s social heterogeneity and the territorial isolation of the poorer populations is expected to be partially overcome, yielding better living conditions in their habitats and eliciting changes in their household livelihood strategies and way of living. however, conflict will proliferate in view of the local government?s institutional weaknesses, illegal land occupations, inadequate public service provision, and demands for employment.
Sousa G,Eduardo;
Revista INVI , 2010, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-83582010000200002
Abstract: urban space currently represents the main form of economic and demographic concentration not only in mexican cities, but also in latin american cities and across the world. understanding the way these urban spaces turn into metropolises is an essential aspect when attempting to influence on them. this can be done through the creation of proper planning instruments, which may generate public policies designed to avoid the proliferation and occupation of vulnerable spaces.
Decision Making for Capacity Expansion of Water Supply Systems  [PDF]
H. Alhassan, G. Naser, A. S. Milani, S. Nunoo
Journal of Water Resource and Protection (JWARP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jwarp.2015.716104
Abstract: This study developed a systematic decision-making process for water supply capacity expansion using the analytic hierarchy process. The decision-making criteria were categorized into environmental, economic, technical and socio-cultural aspects. Capacity expansion of three water resources (Kpong, Weija and Teshie plants) of Accra-Tema Metropolitan Area (Ghana) was studied as a test case. The research resulted in the environmental criterion with the highest priority weight (52.4%), followed by the economic (30.6%), technical (11.3%) and socio-cultural criteria (5.8%). The overall analysis ranked the Kpong plant with a score of 36.1% followed by the Weija and Teshie plants with scores 33.8% and 30.2%, respectively.
Globalización y desigualdades socioterritoriales: la expansión de la periferia metropolitana de Caracas
Cariola,Cecilia; Lacabana,Miguel;
EURE (Santiago) , 2003, DOI: 10.4067/S0250-71612003008700001
Abstract: the analyses of the metropolitan expansion in latin american cities have put the emphasis on the impacts of the globalization neglecting, in some cases, the decisions of the national economics agents and actors and the trends that were operating before the opening of our economies. the process of globalization of our cities has been partial and rather than produce dual cities has contributed to the conformation of fragmented metropolises. in the metropolitan region of caracas, the sharp socio-territorial heterogeneity due to the restructuring processes is replicated with less intensity in the periphery of the primary city, generating new and diverse socio-territorial inequalities. the economic activities linked to the global economy coexist with the economy of poverty; the livelihood strategies and the ways of life have changed in the context of the mutual interaction among the global and the local, the traditional and the modern
Salvador na "Globaliza??o
Porto,Edgard; Carvalho,Edmilson;
EURE (Santiago) , 2001, DOI: 10.4067/S0250-71612001008000008
Abstract: the following paper sets the city of salvador-bahía, brazil′s third most populated city, in context with the effects of globalization. between the 1950?s and 1970?s, brazil?s northeastern region experienced fast economic growth due to federal financial and fiscal incentives. this sudden process occurred unevenly at regional and city levels, especially for salvador that released internal areas to expand and decentralize itself. however, during the 1980?s and 1990?s this process was reversed due to neoliberalism and productive restructuring. these are the elements that define in what terms globalization sets in. consequently, the economic and social spaces of the metropolitan area contracted, increasing the number of unemployed and under-employed people, and intensifying social segregation and exclusion. on the other hand, some "modern islands" in the city began to gather around small but economically prosperous activities like tourism and linked themselves to other national and international areas instead of local places and flows
Los frutos amargos de la globalización: expansión y reestructuración metropolitana de la ciudad de México
Hiernaux Nicolas,Daniel;
EURE (Santiago) , 1999, DOI: 10.4067/S0250-71611999007600003
Abstract: the changes in the mexican economy during the last fifteen years have had profound effects on territorial organization, both on a national and regional scale; it also upset urban economies: a strong demographical and economic growth of medium size cities, and a restructuring of the metropolitan economies are some of its consequences. such transformations allow us to see, although not directly, the possibility of a modification of the social system and, among others, of the perceptions and usage of the city by communities. this article is divided into two sections: the first one will analyze the economic transformations that have reconfigured mexico city. the second part of this essay will deal with the transformations that have occurred in the urban structure of the capital in relation to large trends that have been dealt with before: new commercial compounds, neighborhood segregation, the coming of ?post modern? spaces, etc.
Analysis of Relationships Between Distribution of Population and Spatial Economy of Communes in the Kraków Metropolitan Area
Katarzyna Gorczyca
Bulletin of Geography. Socio-economic Series , 2008, DOI: 10.2478/v10089-008-0011-9
Abstract: The expansion of developed areas is one the factors that influence the distribution of population. Spatial policy implemented by communes reflects the existing tendencies but is also a factor that moulds the occurring processes. The aim of this article is to present the planned development of areas designated for investing, depending on the existing density of population. The article presents relationships between location and present distribution of population, and planned degree of expansion of development of communes located within the Kraków Metropolitan Area (the "KMA"). The range of areas designated for investing was analysed based on valid commune planning documents, which means that the article took into account 52 land use plans concerning all the communes that form the Kraków Metropolitan Area. The object of analysis is the spatial policy of communes related to the expansion of development, as well as demographic conditions of the Kraków Metropolitan Area.
Dinamicas de urbaniza??o na hiperperiferia da metrópole de S?o Paulo: análise dos processos de expans?o urbana e das situa??es de vulnerabilidade socioambiental em escala intraurbana
Alves, Humberto Prates da Fonseca;Alves, Claudia Durand;Pereira, Madalena Niero;Monteiro, Antonio Miguel Vieira;
Revista Brasileira de Estudos de Popula??o , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-30982010000100009
Abstract: the objective of this article is to analyze, on an intraurban scale, the interrelations among processes of urban expansion and situations of socioenvironmental vulnerability in a hyperperipheral region of the s?o paulo metropolitan region in recent years (2000 to 2006). this geographical region includes the district of cidade tiradentes and its surrounding area, located at the extreme eastern side of the municipality of s?o paulo. the overall methodology of the study involves the mapping of the use of the soil and of the areas of urban expansion, using satellite images, as well as the identification and characterization of situations (areas) of socioenvironmental vulnerability. to this end, socioenvironmental indicators are constructed and analyzed based on census sectors from the federal census of 2000, including socioeconomic, demographic and environmental data. the results show a strong correlation between the processes of urban expansion and growth of substandard settlements and situations of socioenvironmental vulnerability in the hyperperipheral region of cidade tiradentes and its surrounding area. it was also seen that there are broad overlappings between social and environmental vulnerabilities, with strong concentration of social and environmental problems and risks in certain areas, as is the case of the census sectors of high socioenvironmental vulnerability in the cidade tiradentes region. these areas show irregularity in the use of the soil and widespread presence of substandard settlements such as shantytowns and irregular subdivision projects. there are also extremely critical socioeconomic conditions, with very low levels of income, formal education and sanitation.
