Our study object is the tri-border Amazon territory that covers the Iñapari (Peru), Assis Brasil (Brazil) and Bolpebra (Bolivia) urban centers. In the future, the explosive and disordered urban growth will lead to a physical continuity between the three hamlets, due to a clear trend towards the formation of an international conurbation. The problems of the border towns will be exacerbated: environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, delinquency, prostitution, drugs trafficking, smuggling, etc. This will hinder the territorial management of one of the worlds’ richest areas in biodiversity, affecting the fragile environment and ecosystems of the Acre River basin. We intend to present a new development perspective of this area of study. In this regard, it is necessary to adopt a strategic approach that integrates territorial planning and management, crossing international boundaries. We are talking about the constitution of a single institutional structure for tri-border urban planning and management: an international city.
