This is the second time that UP-DCERP has partnered with UN-Habitat for the ICHSPD. This year, it is also part of the country office’s Urban October celebration.
Representatives from the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD), Technical Assistance Movement for People and Environment, Inc. (TAMPEI), and UN-Habitat joined practitioners, researchers, policymakers, the private sector, and other urban innovators from across the globe to share knowledge and insights on the Philippine experience in building climate-resilient cities.

In the News

For many cities, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated pre-existing issues in poverty and inequality including challenges in employment and livelihood, transport and accessibility, access to basic services, and security of tenure. The ones who suffered the worst impact are the marginalized urban populations. It is then vital to understand the situation of the urban poor to inform the facilitation and conduct of resilient and green recovery in the cities.

#ShelterStories feature first-hand narratives and stories on the ground written by UN-Habitat communities, project partners, and advocates.

The project applied the STDM to address the formidable challenge of establishing the people-to-land relationship in post-conflict Marawi, particularly within the Most Affected Area (MAA)/Ground Zero where most structure lay in ruins.
