Adaptation actions

Green Area Protection and Proposed Quilpué/Regional Park
The proposal calls for the conservation of 450 hectares as an inter-community park to avoid deforestation and later development after zoning changes. Open spaces, for use by the community, are to be facilitated as spaces for gatherings, play, sports, traditional celebrations and recreation. This sector is part of the Marga Marga basin and experts have classified it as a biodiversity corridor that should be protected. Start year 2011
