Altos de la Estancia

a case of social resilience to build up a metropolitan park

The project pretends to promote the transformation of Altos de la Estancia, a high- risk area in the South of Bogota, into a Metropolitan Park, by strengthening the social resilience through capacity-building and interoperability among communities and institutions, in order to increase governance within the territory and adaptability to global climate change.


The landslides affected nearly 73 acres. It was necessary to resettle around three thousand families, combining technical expertise and financial resources to reduce their level of vulnerability.
