After 50 years the Alliance for Progress was launched, the policies for territorial planning in Latin America have proved to fail. The WB and the IADB, instruments of the US international politics for the consolidation of its global and regional hegemony, are its main financial and doctrinaire sources. These agencies’ logics prevail in the general and territorial planning. In the aftermath of the structural adjustments programs, with the doctrine of global governance the WB and the IADB seek to extend social capitalist relations, encouraging (semi)periferic bourgeouisies to speed up their competitive integration into the world market. The RIISA and the Puebla Panamá Plan are the territorial core of the project: they shape new export-extractive geographies legitimized with urban environmental infrastructures and a discourse on transparency simultaneously with an increasing repression.
