Medellín’s aerial cablecars : social inclusion and reduced emissions
Case study on Medellin's Metrocables in a United Nations publication. This guide looks at the relationship between built and natural environments from the perspective of cities, and considers how their impact on cosystem functioning might be reduced by making best use of their land coverage. Planning the growth of cities to achieve appropriate densities and providing alternative forms of mobility to private vehicles help to slow urban expansion onto ecologically sensitive land, and can reduce citizens’ demand for scarce resources by sharing them more efficiently.
