Analysis and Operation of the territorial strategies Estrategia 100×100 and Zonas de Atención Prioritaria (ZAP) to fight poverty in the Secretariat of Social Development of Mexico.
Estrategia 100×100 is the territorial strategy of the social policy of the government of Mexico to fight poverty in the 125 municipalities with the lowest levels of human development. These municipalities are located in remote places of Mexico, faraway from basic services, and for this reasons cannot participate in the economy. The municipalities are inhabited by indigenous people. The strategy fights poverty in seven aspects: education, health, income, and basic infrastructure, protection of natural resources, housing and food security.
Zonas de Atención Prioritaria is the strategy to improve the conditions of housing and basic infrastructure in the high marginalized 849 municipalities of the country.
