Background and objectives
UN-HABITAT has developed an exercise that allowed the construction of baselines that oriented the choice of commitments from the authorities at the district level and local level with respect to the Millennium Development Goals. This project was committed to training consultants of the project to properly relate the goals and progress of the project with:
Millennium Development Goals: To localize the MDG’s by districts in Bogotá and develop the baseline for the localities;
- Public Journalism: To improve the capacity of public officers to interact with media and promote better quality of media coverage and understanding of municipal activities, projects, programmes and policies.
- Street vendors: To contribute to a theoretical framework to better understand the formal-informal economy and use of public space of street vendors.
The main activities included:
Place the MDGs at the local level and build the base for monitoring indicators for the localities which have available information.
- Moving forward on the proposal for public communication and journalism as well as aspects of training and dissemination of progress in this area.
- Characterize in detail the conditions under which the informal sales are made in Bogotá.
- Dissemination and advocacy of the project results.
