Descentralización Y Participación Social, Fernando Carrión Mena Dec 1997

Descentralización Y Participación Social, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las principales características del Estado Nacional en el Ecuador pueden definirse en los siguientes términos: Estado unitario, régimen presidencialista, organización descentralizada (a través de provincias y cantones) y sectorializada (ministerios), y estructura funcional (ejecutivo, legislativo y judicial).

Todo Estado unitario, en su integración, da prioridad a los siguientes criterios:

1. Mayor importancia de lo sectorial sobre lo territorial, lo cual significa que la intervención estatal se la hace desde ciertos recortes de la realidad definidos por el centro y hacia la periferia. En la actualidad el desarrollo nacional descansa en las políticas sectoriales, descuidando las regionales, provinciales y locales.

El Regreso A La Ciudad Construida, Fernando Carrión Mena Sep 1997

El Regreso A La Ciudad Construida, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

La relación entre suelo urbano y ciudad es indisoluble; es tan así que durante mucho tiempo se los entendió como si fueran lo mismo. Por eso, originalmente el desarrollo urbano fue concebido como el resultado de los cambios en los usos de suelo propuestos por la planificación urbana.

Si bien esta comprensión inicial perdura hasta ahora, no se puede negar la existencia de un avance en la comprensión de la temática urbana, que ha llevado a superar esta visión espacialista caracterizada por la sobredeterminación de lo espacial sobre lo social. Pero también, por aquella antítesis que postula la llamada «teoría ...

The Natural And Cultural Landscape Of Greene County, Virginia, Richard J. Neubauer May 1997

The Natural And Cultural Landscape Of Greene County, Virginia, Richard J. Neubauer

Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) Student Scholarship

One hundred and fifty five miles west of the Atlantic coast a sign welcomes travelers to Greene County, Virginia. The natural landscape of the region is defined by the transition between the flattish Piedmont plateau and natural wall to the west known as the Blue Ridge Mountains. The lushly forested mountain slopes and nutrient rich upland soils have long provided economic and cultural foundations, but indiscriminate land use now offers multiple threats to the rural heritage of the County. Overtimbered mountain slopes and multiple pollutants have threatened the immune systems of the forest, leaving them vulnerable to natural pests. Soils ...


Sensitive Urban Mass, Thomas Zoli May 1997

Sensitive Urban Mass, Thomas Zoli

Architecture Senior Theses

Even with little remaining industrial presence in Amsterdam, NY the relics of industrial prosperity still hold an important urban identity. They represent the city as it was originally designed. I propose that by reprogramming a large section of integrated, industrial urban fabric, it is possible for the city to reclaim its identity and grow. Most early American industrial architecture is inherently urban. only later when planning boards purged industry from the city center because of the side effects if an industrial core, did the evolution on the industrial satellite city emerge. The mill (grist, textile, powder, etc.) was the urban ...


Human Capital Investment As An Economic Development Strategy: A Detroit Analysis, Truman Hudson Jr. May 1997

Human Capital Investment As An Economic Development Strategy: A Detroit Analysis, Truman Hudson Jr.

Wayne State University Theses

Many urban developers have responded to the challenges of economic development1 by providing tax incentives to businesses for relocating to urban areas (Bartik, 1995). By not being able to provide the skilled labor force that businesses require, developing communities are not postured to fully take advantage of the newly created job opportunities. Thus, wage disparities between the classes increase, leaving many of the underclass citizens without adequate employment for sustaining modest living standards (Turner, 1991).

As part of various economic development strategies2, increased concerns have been given to human-capital based strategies (Psacharo-Poulos, 1985). This paper puts forth the ...

Assessing The Future Of The New England Mill Town: What Are The Key Factors That Lead To Successful Revitalization?, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval Apr 1997

Assessing The Future Of The New England Mill Town: What Are The Key Factors That Lead To Successful Revitalization?, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval

John R. Mullin

Over the past twenty years, we have been involved in economic revitalization projects in more than 50 mill towns across the state of Massachusetts. We begin these projects with a quiet visit to each community. Moving off a state or interstate road, we meander down through a highly dense village of multiunit tenements. Built close to the road, they are always a decided mix of well-kept and decaying structures. They are rarely one or the other entirely. It is as if the residents and owners are undecided about reinvestment or commitment to the community.


Arts Resources For Children And Youth In Philadelphia, Mark J. Stern, Susan C. Seifert Apr 1997

Arts Resources For Children And Youth In Philadelphia, Mark J. Stern, Susan C. Seifert

Arts Resources for Children and Youth in Philadelphia—1995-1997

This report, commissioned in 1995 by The Pew Charitable Trusts, presents findings of a study of arts and cultural resources for children and youth in Philadelphia. The purpose of the project was to examine access to and opportunities in the arts for young people and assess the strengths and weaknesses of the citywide system. The project used two perspectives to assess resources. First, the research team developed a geographic data base of existing nonprofit youth arts providers and arts in the public schools. This was combined with US census data to examine the geography and socio-economic context of existing services ...


Un Fenómeno Que Le Llega Al Ecuador. La Violencia Sin Fin En Colombia, Fernando Carrión Mena Apr 1997

Un Fenómeno Que Le Llega Al Ecuador. La Violencia Sin Fin En Colombia, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

No se puede desconocer que el tema de la violencia, como fenómeno social, existe desde tiempos inmemoriales y que, por tanto, se podría decir que es consustancial a la sociedad.

La violencia no es un problema, es una relación social

La violencia debe ser comprendida más allá del análisis patológico de las conductas individuales y concebidas a partir de lo que es: un tipo particular de relación social. Esta consideración de la violencia como relación social permite conocer la organización del delito, las distintas formas que asume y, sobre todo, diseñar políticas preventivas que vayan más allá de lo punitivo ...

Regionalización Y Descentralización Post-Bucaram, Fernando Carrión Mena Mar 1997

Regionalización Y Descentralización Post-Bucaram, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Para que la descentralización ocurra, se requiere, como condición básica, la existencia de la unidad como un todo. Dicho de otra manera, sin una propuesta real de descentralización, este proceso puede potenciar todos los vicios que arrastra y negar las virtudes que tiene. De allí que en la actualidad la descentralización sea la expresi6n vaga de un malestar y de un descontento local-nacional no siempre bien definido, que no llega a representar un movimiento social con un programa.

Ciudad, Comunicación Y Cultura, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

INTRODUCCION: EL ECUADOR URBANO DE FIN DE SIGLO

El predominio de la población urbana, el incremento del número de ciudades y la generalización de la urbanización en el territorio nacional nos lleva a concluir que el Ecuador se ha convertido en un país con población eminentemente urbana (55%) compuesto por ciudades (196 cantones).

Este agudo proceso de urbanización que vive el país ha significado que el hecho organizador de la sociedad ecuatoriana se haya desplazado del campo a la ciudad. Ello tiene dos aspectos que deben ser tomados en cuenta: el primero, que hay un cambio notable en la sociedad ...

¿Dónde Esta El Centro Del Debate De La Descentralización?, Fernando Carrión Mena Jan 1997

¿Dónde Esta El Centro Del Debate De La Descentralización?, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Se debe partir señalando la existencia de un momento de quiebre claramente definido: el año de 1995, cuando se aprueba una Reforma Constitucional que establece que el Ecuador es un país descentralizado y que obligatoriamente se debe repartir el 15 por ciento del Presupuesto Nacional entre los organismos del régimen seccional autónomo.

Sin duda que este hecho marca un hito en la descentralización, en tanto permite pensar que se trata del inicio de un movimiento contrario al proceso centralista -aún hegemónico- y definir la existencia de dos fases: la primera, a manera de antecedentes y, la segunda, en la que ...

Town Of Charlton, Massachusetts Rural Preservation Planning Study, Center For Economic Development

Center for Economic Development Technical Reports

The town of Charlton, Massachusetts has experienced relatively high population growth over the past two and a half decades. From 1970 to 1990 the population more than doubled, and this growth is projected to continue into the next millennium. this boom in residential growth and development has placed financial pressures on the town, impacting the town's ability to provide services to its residents. For example, many of the new residents moving in to Charlton are families with children who increase the funding necessary for the town's school system budget. To offset these financial pressures, the town is actively ...


Real Estate 20:20, John Ratcliffe Jan 1997

Real Estate 20:20, John Ratcliffe

Articles

This paper seeks to establish a framework for studying real estate futures. In doing so, it explores the general climate of change within which property decisions will have to be made, and examines the specific real estate opportunities that might emerge as a result of that change. For the purpose of appraisal, the forces of change are grouped into six sectors - cultural, demographic, economic, environmental, governmental and technological. Property perspectives are then portrayed for each of these sectors, and some conclusions drawn regarding the likely directions of change in the fields of real estate investment, development and management. Above all ...
