Why to map?




Friday 8 February PM. Community leaders and residents from Barrios Altos, CIDAP and the DPU team come together to plan the mapping that will be done on the field tomorrow. We start by discussing WHY TO MAP.  Mapping is identified by the communities as a means to document and denounce otherwise invisible processes of change such as slow evictions. It is also seen as a strategic activity to understand trends and ongoing processes of chance by institutions and real estate developers. Last but not least, mapping is seen as a tool to capture the physical and social architecture of Barrios Altos and the room for manoeuvre to promote strategic interventions.
