This research is based on the investigation and analysis of the current perception of the city of Bahía de Caráquez in the canton of Sucre, Manabí, on the subject of plans that help urban renewal and provide a broad vision of how good planning can improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of the city, giving greater priority to pedestrians and the existing biodiversity in the green areas that are in a state of neglect and without care. The urban plans seek to increase tourism in order to reactivate the economy of the area, which is why we want to create a strategy or urban regeneration plan that helps both the population and the city, so that both benefit and change this vision of the city. These processes include physical, economic and social interventions, which are carried out in a participatory and sustainable manner, with the aim of generating a stronger and healthier community. Therefore, urban regeneration is an opportunity to transform urban areas into more livable, safe and attractive spaces, promoting a culture of citizen participation and responsibility in local development.

Joel Arturo Hidalgo Zambrano , University of Guayaquil

Joel Arturo Hidalgo Zambrano born in the city of Bahia de Caraquez, province of Manabi, architecture student at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Guayaquil, currently studying ninth semester. As a student, he has participated in several academic projects and has been present in the workplace as an intern in companies dedicated to engineering and architecture, where he has put into practice all the knowledge acquired in his university career. The field where it stands out is urbanism, since it seeks for its citizens to integrate with the environment through optimal design strategies that prioritize the well-being of its inhabitants.

Pedro Steban Becerra Arteaga , University of Guayaquil

Pedro Steban Becerra Arteaga born in El Carmen, province of Manabi, an architecture and urban planning student at the University of Guayaquil, currently in the ninth semester of my degree. I have taken and still take several courses to improve my knowledge in the field of project design and presentation, together with this I am interested in being part of new projects presented by the faculty, such as participation in the "Avenida 9 de Octubre" contest and the proposal of the "Linear park on university grounds". I am very interested in new technologies applicable to architecture and urban planning, for this reason look for the mention in Territorial Planning.
