South-South Cooperation: The Social Value of Sustainable Urbanization in Latin American Cities.

The last report of cities in 2020 and the proclamation of the New Global Urban Agenda presented a set of general guidelines for its implementation in cities and rural territories that are constantly in processes of adaptation, in response to phenomena such as poverty; economic challenges in the formulation of land policies, the conditioning of programs for the provision of social housing or public space, as well as the reconfiguration of dynamics of technological competition, conflict and evolution in terms of social and spatial mobility.

These general guidelines gave as a response an institutional action to the conflicts, the territories and systems of complex cities, both urban and rural, which required proper planning, management and financing with a view to reducing the social inequalities of the people who inhabit, converge and build daily life, in order to consolidate social and personal welfare at the local level, regional and national. However, after the hard and unexpected arrival of covid 19, there was a slow worldview of recovery in the productivity and scope of execution of cities to the needs of people, making the conditions of habitability in their territories more expensive. For this reason, under the three (3) nuclei of systemic analysis: sociopolitical; economic models of productivity and glocal development and, the paradigm of technological innovation will be presented at the next world urban forum in Katowice, Poland.

The social value of sustainable urbanization from the vision of the global south, as a public management tool applied to the configuration of solid institutions, with high anti-corruption standards capable of responding to those living conditions that lead to well-being and are identified through overlapping dimensions from the Multidimensional Poverty Index, among the most outstanding, the habitat conditions that associate themes such as: infrastructure for sustainable mobility; urban environmental management, resilience in the post-covid era and efficient access to land to co-build fairer cities. On the basis of fairer cities, the social value of sustainable urbanization implies an adequate transition from urban governance and public policy decision-making towards a scenario of anticipation and effective response to transgenerational changes in terms of age group needs.
