Pathways for progressive planning through extending water and electricity networks in the irregular settlements of Lima

Abstract

The spatial and physical dimensions of extending water and electricity networks in irregular settlements are rarely analyzed. Conducting works in unplanned areas, however, appears to be a technical and political challenge. This research looks at the practices and tools actors use to build Lima’s infrastructures. Utility firms create mechanisms to overcome planning deficiencies, which offers new perspectives to rethink planning aims and methods. Sociotechnical, informational, and institutional innovations are revealed that actually could be considered as strategic options for developing cities. Their spatial impact argues in favor of preserving rights-of-way for progressive servicing in order to face unpredictable growth.
