Social cohesion is one of the objectives of the creation of the AMB and is the principle by which all policies concerning urban planning, transport, environment, infrastructures and assistance to metropolitan municipalities are defined.
The aim is to achieve a cohesive and united metropolitan development, in which the benefits and costs of living in the metropolitan area are equally distributed among its inhabitants, regardless of the municipality in which they live.
To fulfil this aim, the competencies of the AMB also include the following ones:
- Promotion of pluri-municipal policies enhancing social cohesion and territorial balance.
- Participation in the Safety Commission of the metropolitan territorial area in order to promote civic coexistence policies.
