Abstract

Lack of territorial planning by municipal governments derives in the irregular and unsustainable growth of cities. Nigeria, Guayaquil has experienced deep ecosystem vulnerability since people first started to populate the territory in the mid 80’s; turning it into an endangered ecosystem. Through a SWOT and TOPSIS analysis, this research proposes the creation of a “module” that aims to strengthen the relationship between both urban and natural spaces, by reforesting the mangrove swamps. Thus, benefiting the ecosystem, taking steps to achieve the percentage of green spaces stipulated by the World Health Organization (WHO), and addressing several SDG’s established by the United Nations (UN). The results show that the ecological border prototype is viable if the conditions in which it takes place consider: (a) cooperation community-municipality and (b) material implementation according to the TOPSIS method. This will make the project sustainable and long term beneficial for the territory.
