Sumario:In spite of the limited development of public policy concerning territorial planning in Colombia, there are important mechanisms that regulate the organization of the territory, such as Territorial Arrangement Plans (POT in Spanish), which are determining instruments if the connotation of their adopted decisions is attended to. These plans must have qualified citizen participation, which translates into the validity of planning. Set aside, the undeniable progress of the concept of governance is present in different environments and is currently regarded as a relevant option in terms of the interrelation between public and private sectors for the management of joint solutions to the problems of the territories. This study analyzes the relationships between citizen participation and territorial ordering, with regard to the notion of governance as core concept.
