Territorial Planning is a tool for the sustainable use of natural resources. For many years the Peruvian territory has been occupied under the
logic of making the most of natural resources, causing in some cases negative impacts on the ecosystems and the productive base of the country, also generating processes of unbalanced development. This is mainly due to a lack of articulation between national and local policies with territorial incidence and the lack of a shared vision of balanced and sustainable criteria.
To avoid these situations, it is necessary to promote mechanisms that allow the necessary conditions for a balanced development in the future of the territory.
We understand the territory as the space comprising the soil, subsoil, maritime domain and air space in which social, economic, political and cultural relations between people and the natural environment are developed.
