The Urban Green Network (RVU) program is a sectoral strategy that was created with the objective of systemically integrating the components of the natural environment in and around Quito. Through this, it seeks to recognize or grant them functions within the concept of a sustainable city. Initially it is conceptualized as a system of vegetation connectors that, through the urban fabric, generate a spatial linkage between natural conservation areas and green spaces with ecological value, which facilitate mobility and provide habitat for urban wildlife. However, the Urban Green Network goes beyond environmental contributions, since it promotes new dynamics between nature and the city from the perspective of sustainable development of the Metropolitan District of Quito (DMQ), through the enhancement of economic, social and patrimonial identity values that will contribute to improve the habitability of public space, health and environmental quality, social cohesion, cultural integration and equity, universal accessibility, valuation and enhancement of natural heritage and symbolic spaces for citizens.
