The National Government, through the Annual Development Plan, establishes that public space and green areas should be considered as the structural elements for community life in cities. Projects ensure their role as safe places for interaction and development, with respect to cultural, leisure and recreation activities. Policies dictated should allow friendly and comprehensive city planning.

Incorporating the risk variable in territorial and city planning processes, guarantees citizens the right to safe and resilient habitat, in which forms of informal occupation disappear and population’s vulnerability is reduced. The Ministry of Urban Development and Housing, chaired by Minister Macchiavello, is working towards the construction of habitat and housing policies, that provide conditions for equality, especially for the poor, so each of the Ecuadorian citizens may achieve a decent life.
