The families have deeds certifying their legal tenure of the houses and have built a family estate that allows them opportunities not only to access loans in the formal sector but also to generate rental income. The building of elevated housing facilities provided a solution for 105 families and improved and legalized the house ownership for 116 families who now have at least 30m2 per living quarters. The social control of the land use is a reality and there is improved safety inside the settlement. There is provision of daily amenities and social activities for children and adults in public spaces that formerly did not exist. Empowerment of women in these processes is reflected on their active participation in committees and in contributing in self-building projects. This insertion by the community to participate in the social programmes and the municipal government efforts were supplemented by the training of women in different skills by the “Zone Entrepreneurship Development”-CEDEZO; the provision of “Ecological Solar Systems” by the Secretariat of the Environment; the health, education and recreation activities for children through “LUDOTEKA”; the prevention and management of emergencies with SIMPAD-Sistema de Atenci َ n y Prevenci َ n de Desastres (Disaster Prevention and Care System); URBAN PACT, for conflict management with the Secretariat of Government; and by the program BUEN COMIENZO, for family care and tracking with the Social Welfare Secretariat.

called “Juan Bobo”) not only fits into the purposes of the Medell ي n 2008-2011 Municipal Development Plan but goes from being a metropolitan coverage program to becoming an urban development housing model that is interesting for the municipalities in the region and country. EDU as the coordinating and executing entity has strengthened its technical, administrative and operational aspects. This entity currently has diverse tools and contracting mechanisms that facilitate more ambitious goal planning in the sector (public bids, trust operations, trade offers, alliances, mixed economy corporations, real estate contests, joint ventures, intra-administrative agreements, etc). As the responsible entity for the technical and economic viability of the housing projects, EDU becomes the focal point of the municipal entities and promotes public sector involvement as well as that of NGOs, welfare institutions and the private sector. This is a good initiative in slum upgrading and urban planning and management. It meets the criteria of impact, partnership and sustainability.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
