Details about how the instrument was designed:
In each commune, the communities together with the Municipal Administration make agreements on the main problems and projections in each of the territories for a term of twelve years. All of this is set out in a document called the Local Development Plan (PDL), which becomes the navigation chart for planning in each of the City's sectors. The Local Development Plans are the result of a participatory process in which the Municipal Administration, in coordination with the Local Administrative Boards, the Communal and/or Corregimental Planning Councils, the social organizations and the community in general, identify the needs and priorities of their territory and according to this, they outline the work route in the short, medium and long term to influence the development of the communes and corregimientos according to the identified needs. The Local Development Plans are made up of a diagnosis, a long-term strategic component with a twelve-year time frame and a four-year medium-term execution program that articulates it with the Municipal Development Plan of Medellín. The 21 existing Local Development Plans in Medellín are associated with each commune and corregimiento and are in effect until the year 2027. The Participatory Budget is the tool through which the communities finance their LDPs, reflecting in these plans the aspirations and needs of the community, in order to achieve the strategic objectives of local development.
