Intracorp was the consulting company for the revised ABID (Association for Boquete Integral Development) plan just finish. The plan is what is call POTADU (Plan to Sort Territory ,Environment and Urban Development of the Boquete Municipal). Now the civil society and the Municipality are responsible for the implementation of the plan.

This presentation will be presented by the mayor from the Municipality (and perhaps others) and Rodrigo Marciacq from ADIB as the civil society. The presentation will be short and the floor will be open for questions.

The idea is to get input from the audience of areas of interest regarding the plan, to provide more information about the content of the plan, and to advise how the foreign community in Boquete can be involved.

General Coordinator, Dra. María Elisa Ruiz, will be our speaker. The directive board will be present in support of this meeting.

This is a great opportunity for participants in building a community, to face the challenges of macro changes. Boquete is a community that provides the perfect scenario for understanding the values and resources that must be kept for future generations to enjoy. In this presentation, ADIB will present the development of activities at this level and the future activities Boqueteños are involved in.
