Abstract

A pesar de que la pobreza en Colombia se redujo considerablemente en las últimas cuatro décadas, Quibdó es la ciudad capital donde se mantienen los peores indicadores. El presente documento utiliza información cartográfica y espacial para caracterizar la pobreza de las comunas e identificar posibles trampas espaciales de pobreza en la capital chocoana. Los resultados muestran que la zona norte tiene los indicadores de pobreza y violencia más altos en la ciudad. No obstante las grandes inversiones en los últimos cinco años, se registra una persistencia en las condiciones de pobreza en Quibdó. Por ejemplo, el indicador de necesidades básicas insatisfechas continúa por encima del observado en varias ciudades capitales cuatro décadas atrás. Finalmente, el documento propone una opción de inversiones en varios sectores que podría ayudar a cerrar las brechas de pobreza a 2030. **** ABSTRACT: Besides an overall poverty reduction in Colombia in the last four decades, Quibdó remains as the capital city with the worst indicators. This paper assesses poverty in the communes of the city using spatial information and geographical maps attempting to identify possible spatial poverty traps. The results indicate that the north of the city faces the highest indicators of poverty and violence. Although public investment has increased in the last 5 years, the conditions of poverty persist. For example, the rate of unsatisfied basic needs remain higher than other capital cities four decades ago. To end with, the paper prioritizes investment in several sectors in order to bridge the poverty gap in 2030.
