Abstract

The BREEAM-CM and LEED-ND Neighborhood Sustainability Global Certification Systems have been developed in first world countries, where sustainable construction has been debated and implemented for years. Currently, they are very present in Latin America, even in countries like Paraguay, where there is still no solid framework on which to anchor the sustainable development of cities. Consequently, this paper is the result of the analysis of these global systems priorities in contrast with the most urgent sustainability needs to attend in Asunción, as part of a doctoral thesis research that the author is developing at the Polytechnic University from Madrid. For this purpose, several qualified professionals were consulted in Asunción through interview. As a result, significant discrepancies between these priorities have been identified, as well as some of these global systems weaknesses when contextualized in a developing country. This has lead to some recommendations for Paraguayan public institutions in order to develop sustainable urban planning.
