Improving the sanitary conditions of public markets in Cartagena

AUA partners worked with the Cartagena Municipality to find solutions for improving the urban and sanitary conditions of the city’s main public food market, located in Bazurto, one of the poorest neighborhoods of the city.  They assisted in drafting a management strategy that allowed the city government to communicate with the market’s vendors, understand their needs, and build communication systems and participatory methods for both vendors and the municipality to work together on decision-making processes.  The proposal was approved and implemented by the Cartagena mayor.
