During the lunchtime seminars, Chantelle L'Heureux, an urban planning graduate from the Faculté d’Aménagement of the Université de Montréal and project manager of the GRT Rive-Sud, will present her research "El Ordenamiento Territorial: le processus de planification territoriale dans les zones minières au Ancash, Pérou".
In collaboration with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, this research project analyses the territorial planning tool of small municipalities in Ancash that are affected by the presence of mines. The negative impacts of mines on the territory are numerous. Local actors perceive the implementation of territorial planning as a solution to improve living conditions since it strengthens the capacity of local governments to make better decisions. First, the presentation will focus on the main tool, the Ordenamiento Territorial. Then, it will identify the main limits to its implementation and conclude with concrete recommendations aimed at improving the effectiveness of this tool.
Bring your lunch and join the discussion on Thursday, October 17, at room 3073 of the Faculté d’Aménagement of the Université de Montréal.
Arrive early places are limited!
