In 2016, Cartagena was the third city with the highest incidence of monetary poverty
in Colombia, a situation that contrasts with the economic dynamism of sectors such
as industry, tourism, construction, and port activity. This document proposes an
integral public intervention to overcome extreme poverty in Cartagena in the
medium term. Among the measures considered to be priorities in this study are: (i)
identification, relocation, and protection of the population living in areas of nonmitigable
risk; (ii) coverage of essential public services such as water and sewage;
(iii) education and iv) employment and job informality. We also present a
preliminary estimate of the cost of this proposal.
