City Planning with the Doughnut in Cali, Colombia

The City of Cali in Colombia has downscaled the Doughnut as a local planning tool, with a set of related indicators, for their own city visioning and planning.

In May 2020, the newly elected government of the City of Cali, Colombia, adopted the Doughnut as a planning tool for its four-year developmental plan.

They created their own downscaled version, along with a set of locally determined social and ecological indicators.

Cali, in the west of Colombia, is home to over 2 million people and growing fast, with wide inequalities and many unmet social needs. At the same time the rich nature reserves surrounding the city are at growing risk of degradation.

In this 23 minute presentation, Roy Alejandro Bareras from Cali's Planning Department, introduces the downscaled Doughnut, along with some of the major challenges that the city faces, and the city's plans to tackle them, all through the lens of Cali's City Doughnut.

This presentation was part of the Humanity Rising webinar series run by Ubiquity University

    The Cali development plan which not only includes the Doughnut approach but also the City Resiliency Index was comprehensive and filled with great ideas.
