Chiclayo - Lambayeque North Peru territorial structural resolution
  Pedro B. Ortiz Chiclayo - Lambayeque North Peru Metropolitan Metro Matrix Structural Strategic Planning
  Peruvian coast has a very specific climate. Wet clouds from the Pacific Ocean flow over the coast but they do not pour out. They only discharge when confronted with the high cold peaks of the Andes. Large rivers then flow from the Andes into the Pacific. Result? The climate is dry and dusty. It never rains. But large river provides for a lot of water.
Which should have been the policy of water management? An intelligent irrigation system that would have made the best for agricultural production of the otherwise dry rainless desertic lands. This policy has never been implemented. maybe this is the time to do so when the agro-food production can be flown or shipped to the countries able to pay for it.

Chiclayo can be the model to be replicated along the South American coast from Ecuador to Chile. The directrix of the Pacific coast and the generatrix of the perpendicular river courses produced a reticular pattern that has to be managed as such. The metropolitan organization of Chiclayo-Lambayeque, quite simple, has to be integrated within a pattern of territorial management that addresses the larger issues of Peru development.
