In this article, we go back on two ways of taking into account the environmental dimension in urban planning and governance. We stress the difficult articulation between these two approaches – “urban ecology” and “urban environment” – and the actual impasse the discipline of urban planning finds itself in in its quest of the sustainable city. These two approaches for acting on the city by considering the complexity of its milieu build on different representations of this milieu and different modes of action legitimation. Negating each other, they can difficultly coexist, even less articulate. Through the example of water management in Cochabamba, we stress the tensions between these approaches. We point also to the awkward and marginalized position of urban planning and challenges it must face to regain a capacity of action in contemporary fragmented cities that know complex governance landscapes and rare or endangered resources.

In contemporary fragmented cities, DIY urbanism is seen as a way to insure inclusiveness and cohesion by mobilizing citizens and improving urban space. However, the capacity of DIY to go beyond local epiphenomena and contribute to a systemized way of city making is still an open question that is gaining increasing interest in literature and practice. In this article, we differ from answers provided in the literature to this question in that we are interested in the ways DIY practices could contribute to build from the bottom-up large-scale territories. We rely on Lévy-Strauss oppositions of the bricoleur vs. the engineer and the “savage” vs. the scientist to stress that DIY is instrumental and political. This leads us to consider DIY as a process of problem-solving and domos building where the operational and socio-spatial aspects of DIY are intrinsically linked and evolving together. It is by understanding both these aspects that we can understand the possibilities of, and limitations facing, the development of DIY on a larger territorial scale. We build on case studies in Cochabamba, Bolivia and Beirut, Lebanon. We argue that though it is possible to succeed to build on DIY to develop local territories and rely on these experiences to trace larger ones, the operational and political modes would invariably move towards more top-down comprehensive engineer-like approaches.

We report on results derived from investigations related with vicinal strategies on water management and their effects on the territorial configuration of Cochabamba (Bolivia) metropolitan area. These strategies and their effects are determined by several factors namely, water resources scarcity, accelerated urban growth, self-management legal possibilities and important levels of public investment in both municipal as well as metropolitan scales. The approach is done firstly by describing the features of the studied zone and the problematic of water in the region. Secondly, through the show and analysis of the different forms and strategies of water management, we pay special attention to their effects on the morphology of neighborhoods and the urban networks. The results show the generation of a different territorial ordering which, differing from the one usually adopted in the literature, seems to exhibit how certain types of networks create fragments instead of articulations.

As a result of a set of public policies and of the emergence of various social movements as of 1952 and especially in the years 1994 to 2006, Bolivia has known one of the most important processes of territorial restructuring and re organization of all its state structures. This article tackles the specific characteristics of the major transformations of the country in a period of more than 50 years; a period that led to the rise of what is now called the “Plurinational State of Bolivia”. This is done by analyzing the most important effects of certain public policies implemented between 1950 and 2010. [less ▲]

Cuál es el origen de la planeación urbana? del ordenamiento del territorio? de la reglamentación urbana? Sin duda desde que los derechos de propiedad se han constituido, ha sido necesario un conjunto de herramientas diferentes, algunas llamadas planes. Las cuales tienen la función de intervenir sobre las libertades y derechos de propiedad a fin de evitar el abuso absoluto de ellos. En ese marco la posibilidad de ejercer derechos sobre la propiedad también implica responsabilidades, siendo una de las más importantes la función social. Ella es interpretada desde el urbanismo como la llave fundamental para promover instrumentos de gestión viable y eficiente, traducidos en legislaciones sobre el suelo, normas urbanas y otros. La posibilidad de reformar la normativa urbana de la ciudad de Cochabamba es una ocasión importante y fundamental para considerar la oportunidad que nos brinda la función social constituida en nuestro marco jurídico fundamental, expresado en la CPE y el Código Civil. Finalmente la función social y también la función ecológica de la propiedad inmobiliaria y su reconocimiento ontológico, permite el rediseño elemental de una nueva norma urbana sin la necesidad expresa de reformas constitucionales o marcos legales específicos como la tan demandada ley de urbanismo.

The present volume presents case studies corresponding to applications of GIS which results collaborate with the (re)definition of urban land policy. The 19 chapters correspond to work developed in 9 Latin American countries and were selected based on their geographic distribution, replicability and relevance. The topics were grouped in 3 areas: informal settlements, urban cadastre and urban studies. [less ▲]
