Urban strategies applying green and blue infrastructure focused on sustainable development. Case study: 3rd stage Malecón Villamil Playas
Keywords:Sustainable development; urban regeneration; urban strategies; green and blue Infrastructure.
The Linear Boardwalk of the Villamil Playas Canton was an urban-architectural project executed by the Prefecture of Guayas in conjunction with the Municipality of Playas. This recreational space consists of a long coastal extension; for this reason, the project was divided into three stages, of which 2 of 3 are completed; this last stage is an opportunity for urban regenerative intervention. Floods in the Esterillo sector, Villamil Playas, Ecuador, have been increasing exponentially in recent decades due to several influencing factors, such as the waters and the rains. This has affected trade, tourism, health, and even the sector's security. For this reason, this study proposes sustainable development strategies by implementing blue and green infrastructure. The methodology used was qualitative, with a descriptive scope. The research design was non-experimental-transactional, and the observation sheet and the survey were used as instruments. The most important results indicate that implementing blue and green infrastructure can bring multiple benefits in which efficient resources are used for the use of bodies of water and protection through plant cover expressed in 4 strategic proposals. It is concluded that implementing strategies focused on sustainable development configures a landscape environment that elevates the urban image and integrates the directed uses of the population.
