Lima is a clear example of inequality, both on issues of income and access to public services at an urban level, like public spaces. According to the Lima Cómo Vamos last survey, only 15.7% of Lima citizens with lowest income are satisfied with public spaces in their neighborhoods. Meanwhile, crime and insecurity perception -both connected directly to the quality of public spaces- constantly appear as the main problem that worries Lima’s citizens.
We reduce inequality on access to quality public spaces through the recovery of unused and abandoned public spaces by the promotion of small scale and low cost urban interventions. Additionally, we promote collaborative work between local governments, academic institutions, private sector and civil society; we generate knowledge to empower citizens and we advise and accompany municipalities so they include urban interventions as public policy.
