Sustainable planning allows for an integral development and promotes actions that guarantee and support the capacity of society and the environment to interact in a balanced way considering economic, cultural and natural resources.
Sustainable development incorporates ecological and social integration patterns in territorial planning as a foundation for the promotion of just and equitable cities. It is a projection and design concept that emphasizes the benefits of an ecosystem and generates protection initiatives aimed at preserving the environment efficiently and appropriately, taking in consideration its short and long-term needs.
The principles of sustainable management are based on the efficient use of materials, the limiting of waste, the promotion of renewable energy sources, the reduction of negative impacts on air, water, soil and vegetation, and the improvement of natural cycles.
Planning according to this scheme influences the present and the future of conservation, promotes civic responsibility in the protection of biodiversity and disseminates its biological, social, and cultural value.
