I have finished writing my master thesis work entitled: Alternative strategies for vegetation implementation and integration within the urban context: the case of Bogotá. I will be presenting my work at the 5th AESOP Conference on Sustainable Food Planning. This conference would be held in Montpellier, France.

The strategies included on my work are based on all the highlighted questions in this discussion. Partnerships between the public and the private sector are necessary, not only for economic purposes but to enhance eco systemic services in the city and develop joint programs where both sectors are responsible for the inhabitants wellbeing in the city. In the other hand, government policies must be modified in order to drive the private sector towards responsive practices to community needs.

Attached to this message, I sent the abstract where the relation between Sustainable development, Architecture, Social interaction, Vegetation, and Urban networks are related to food system for a city like Bogotá.
