Abstract

In an insular region, such as the Archipelago of San Andres, Providencia and Santa Catalina, environmental issues tend to sharpen. As result, its environmental management is different compared to other areas of Colombia, since the vast majority of its territory corresponds to marine surface. This implies an environmental management policy which is consistent with said characteristics in order to achieve efficiency and conservation. Nevertheless, San Andres Island has suffered deterioration of its marine and coastal ecosystems due to the absence of sustainability and planning within its economic and urban development. Therefore, this study presents a detailed description of the main environmental issues in the archipelago, especially San Andres Island, and analyzes their management so as to prevent their occurrence in other areas, such as Providencia and Santa Catalina. RESUMEN: En un territorio insular, como el Archipiélago de San Andrés, Providencia y Santa Catalina, los impactos ambientales tienden a agudizarse. Precisamente, como resultado de su condición específica, su manejo ambiental es distinto en comparación con las demás regiones colombianas, ya que casi la totalidad de su territorio es marino. Por lo tanto, la política ambiental dirigida a esta región debe ser consistente con dichas características y, de esa manera, garantizar una mayor eficiencia. Sin embargo, ello no ha sucedido en la isla de San Andrés, puesto que los ecosistemas marinos y costeros han sufrido un deterioro como resultado de la falta de sostenibilidad y planificación en el desarrollo económico y urbano. En ese orden de ideas, este estudio presenta una descripción y análisis detallado acerca de los principales impactos ambientales en el Archipiélago, especialmente en San Andrés, con el objetivo de prevenir su ocurrencia en otros sectores, como Providencia y Santa Catalina.
