Abstract [en]

The Higuamo River in the Dominican Republic is being polluted by a number of industries. The town San Pedro de Macoris is situated at the river mouth and the negative effects of the pollution are apparent for the fishermen and those living in informal settlements along the water. The waterfront has now been designated for development and the project explores hinders and possibilities for the implementation of practices of participation, as well as the challenges it poses to the planner.
