Urban Integral Projects (Proyectos Urbanos Integrales)

An Integral Urban Project (IUP) is a type of urban intervention that aims to raise levels of quality of life for residents in a specific area. It is especially designed to intervene in areas of the city’s most deprived and marginalized areas where the state usually has a high social debt. The project constructs safe public spaces, new public buildings and the improvement of existing schools, medical centers and other services that contribute to social development and the mitigation of poverty. The IUP also addresses the restoration and preservation of the environment to lower the risk of natural disasters and to achieve environmental sustainability.
