Sustainable Cities: Merida -2014
Growth scenarios and sustainable urban development models
Mario Molina Center
Land occupation processes determine the growth of the urban sprawl in relation to the growth of the population, and therefore, the lessening of negative impacts which arise from the cities expansion depends on its adequate planning. Regarding land occupation processes, as part of the Sustainable Cities program, the Mario Molina Center, with support from CONACYT (National Council of Science and Technology) and Banamex, has carried out an exploratory study in search of a methodology for creating urban development scenarios to facilitate informed decision-making and increase the quality of life in Mexican cities.
