Spatial Planning and Sustainable Development in Central America

Spatial Planning and Sustainable Development in Central America

Regional and Economic Development


GIZ/Sistema de la Integración Centroamericana




Central America

Project Description


In addition to their economic growth target, the seven countries that belong to the Central American Integration System (SICA) set the goal of sustainable social and environmental development in 1991.

The SICA member countries recognized that spatial planning and regional development are of central importance and must be tackled simultaneously. However, the necessary introduction of joint planning and coordination processes is advancing slowly. The relevant national institutions lack the necessary skills to foster spatial planning development processes.



AMBERO supports SICA to implement improved strategies and instruments for sustainable spatial planning and regional development at the sub-national and national level, and across borders in Central America.
