The Urban Task Force (UTF) is an ISOCARP initiative to provide expert and unbiased advice on pressing planning issues. The Cancun UTF was organized in response to the damage inflicted on the region by Hurricane Wilma. The intent of the project was to provide local authorities with a set of ideas designed to enable Cancun to be better prepared for future hurricanes. An additional task was to propose alternative urban models for Cancun.
