Díaz Carvajal, Marianella | 2020-10-06
Peri-urban crops and the growth processes of cities have been acting as catalysts of territorial dynamics in the sectors of contact between urban space and the rural sector, producing conflicts over land use, which usually change the spatial organization, for example. political decisions and instruments offered by land use plans; which ultimately generates confrontations between the affected peasant communities and the municipal administrations that exert pressure together with real estate agents, to acquire new spaces for urban expansion. The case of the Los Garzones district and its sidewalks is an example of the conflict processes generated by the proposals to convert this area of the city of Montería into a new commune, turning its land for agricultural use into an area of urban expansion, which that would end the socio-economic and cultural identity of these communities, and the risk of being dependent on other food-producing areas, which are further from the city, is assisted from the academy, the imperative need to maintain food security rings for the municipality of Montería and its area of influence, proposing from the perspective, the construction of an Agroindustrial Center, which maintains land uses in agricultural productivity, a viable perspective from the perspective of rural geography.
