The Green Belt is an urban planning mechanism through which a circumferential area of parks and nature reserves is created around the city of Medellin in order to limit the growth of the city and promote a denser urban development that promotes the protection of nature and biodiversity surrounding the city. In addition, the intervention aims to make the city more resilient to climate change. The Metropolitan Green Belt is one of the urban planning strategies included in the Medellín Land Use Plan (POT) 2014-2027.
