Document of urban metabolism guidelines, within the framework of the Urban Master Plan

The document of urban metabolism guidelines emerges from the cycle of debates and presentations of the thematic table “Urban Metabolism”, framed in the process of writing the Metropolitan Urbanistic Master Plan. In this cycle of debates, which had a marked transversal character, participated up to 100 people from 14 different disciplines.
 
The objective of this document is to synthesize the great amount of information generated during the 14 sessions of the table, so that it can be visualized how to apply urbanism guidelines that improve the urban metabolism. First, the document introduces what are considered the basic principles of the metabolic model. The urbanistic guidelines are developed later, that is, the criteria and instruments that must be implemented in the urban planning to reach or favor the desired model.
 
In order to arrive at these guidelines, which are both thematic and territorial, we start from the main problems regarding the urban metabolism detected in the metropolitan area, the existing improvement opportunities and the competences assigned to the master plan related to urban metabolism. These three determining factors determine the objectives that can be achieved from the urbanism and from which strategies.
