It is a participatory and concerted, also dynamic, and flexible process for the identification of different alternatives for the sustainable use of a given territory in different spheres: national, regional, and local (Article No. 1 DS 087-2004-PCM). Zoning provides basic information to understand which are the development poles, as well as the potential for economic activities according to the conditions of the territory.
Once the Ecological and Economic Zoning is approved, it becomes a technical and guiding instrument for the sustainable use of a territory and its natural resources, highly useful for decision-making and the management of the territory by its authorities, civil society and any citizen who needs to carry out any activity in the territory.
The ZEE includes categories of use that result from the evaluation of the Ecological Economic Units (UEE) through which the various options for sustainable use of territory are identified. The categories of use to be used in the ZEE process will be the following: (1) Productive zones, (2) Ecological protection and conservation zones, (3) Special treatment zones, (4) Recovery zones and (5) Urban or industrial zones.
The purpose of the ZEE is to guide decision-making on the best uses of the territory, considering the needs of the population that inhabits it and in harmony with the environment (Article No. 2 D.S. 087-2004-PCM).Contact MINAM/DGOTA/DMERNT
