Abstract

La Chureca is the city garbage dump of Managua, Nicaragua. For decades, the dump has been mismanaged, or rather un-managed, and La Chureca has become a breeding ground for social and environmental problems for its inhabitants and for the metropolitan area of Managua. Since 2008, global and local actors have placed great efforts to change La Chureca into a sustainable, well-managed, sanitary municipal landfill as well as a functioning neighbourhood. This paper is about how global and local actors deal with issues of sustainability (or its absence and its disorganising) in the organising of the city through the case of La Chureca and its regeneration project.
