STAKE HOLDERS UPDATE URBAN POOR ASSOCIATES ANNUAL REPORT SELAVIP JANUARY TO AUGUST 2010 This is the delayed report of Urban Poor Associates activities financed by SELAVIP from January to September 2010. The funding arrived February 5, 2010 but it makes more sense to begin in January. I. AREA ORGANIZING A. BASECO FIRE HOUSING PROGRAM In January a fire took place in the Northwest corner of Baseco destroying 242 homes. The local peoples organization, Kabalikat, was luckily in a position to help house the victims. In the previous two years Kabalikat had made a structural map of the whole of Baseco (56 has. and about 10,000 families). It also had censused all the families and cataloged all the houses. Thus, when the fire hit, Kabalikat was able to determine who were the legitimate residents. These families agreed to live in makeshift conditions until the Kabalikat housing program could be put into effect, because they knew they would be the beneficiaries. Kabalikat and UPA invited architects, engineers and students to help. An architect made a subdivision plan. The engineers surveyed the fire area and divided it into lots. Luckily we were all lucky to have contacts with Somsook Boonyabancha and the Asian Committee for

Community Action which was able to donate $40,000 to the construction of the fire victim houses. It was decided to build very inexpensive basic houses that families could finish as they had more money. The cost of a house is $300, which is only one third the cost of Habitat for Humanity houses also in Baseco. The great value for the residents of these houses is that they are the legal actual occupants of the plots they occupy. The Baseco land has been proclaimed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for the residents. The occupants of the fire victim houses are in line for leases and titles when the Baseco land is finally turned over to individual families. As of August 122 houses were finished. The above is a summary. We are attaching the pages that are taken from the ACCA Newsletter explaining the housing project in detail. B. ULINGAN/DUMPSITE Most recently in these areas we have determined to go ahead with our plan to provide a chimney for the toxic smoke that comes from the charcoal ovens (ulingan). They have tried several earlier remedies but without success. They attach a drawing by Mang Vic, a local leader in the area, that indicates what we are trying to do. They have an appointment with Cardinal Gaudencio Rosales to discuss funding for the chimney and to ask his help in all aspects of the problem, especially in struggles with powerful persons, such as, Reghis Romero, who has plans for the area that most likely do not include the people. There is more information on Ulingan/Dumpsite in the proposal we sent in June, Page 8.

C. ISLA PUTING BATO The water line discussed in previous reports is now serving all the 2,000 plus families of Isla. Each family saves about P600 a month. Overall the families save P1.5 million which goes now for food, medicine and schooling above all else (See page 6 of UPA proposal for more details). D. R-10 Two water dispensing centers serve 800 families. Savings are P.5 million a month. In late 2009 and early 2010 the people were told they would be evicted. They protested, marched and negotiated winning a promise of good relocation (in Langkiwa, Binan, Laguna), but now the Department of Public Works and Highways says it has no money to proceed with the relocation, or with the road construction. The government has announced plans to modernize the whole North Harbor. This is a privatization project. Two ranking private companies are in charge. It is expected that all of the harbor and all the environs will be seriously affected but it is not clear yet how the people will be affected, except for 600 families actually living in the harbor area who will be evicted. We are working with them. E. KOSMA KOSMA now has 33 groups in its membership. It has extended from the Tondo area to San Andres, Malate and Paco areas. It has been able to have the Manila City Council create a Local Housing Board that will help regulate evictions and upgrading efforts. There were problems however in the voting for peoples seats on the Board. The election has been protested.

They are looking for idle private land in the Tondo area that can serve as relocation sites when the people are evicted. They have a very influential former senator helping us. II. LEGAL WORK Please see section on UPA legal work in the June proposal, page 5. In addition at a meeting October 14 the lawyers of UPA said they were preparing an Omnibus Class Suit for the Supreme Court. The Suit will ask the Court to order all mayors to carry out the census of the poor and the allocating of land for socialized housing that they were ordered to do in 1992 Urban Development and Housing Act (UDHA), but never did.

III. EDUCATION UPA operates four tutoring centers in Baseco for 5th and 6th Graders, for pre-school children and for teenagers who have never been to school. Besides tutoring, the program organizes all the education NGOs in Baseco into a council that pushes for education improvement. IV. RESUMEUPAS PLACE AMONG HOUSING GROUPS IN THE PHILIPPINES The work described above has been and remains the principal work of UPA. It can be said UPA works at all levels of the housing effort. It organizes poor people, since only organized people can take advantage of the housing opportunities that exist. It stops the evictions that would remove the poor from the cities and jobs where the families work. It works on the legislation needed. It organizes large communities, Baseco, for example, so 7,500 families can get housing on secure land. UPA works with the Community Mortgage Program groups to form the Urban Poor Alliance (UP-All), which is the national advocacy organization uniting 1,200 NGOs and peoples groups. It works with the Homeless Peoples Federation of the Philippines, and all other NGOs doing housing because if we dont work together, we wi ll achieve very little. UPA is part of the Partnership of Philippine Support Agency (PHILSSA).


















Current State of Dwellings. Dwellings along the edge of Aplaya are mostly constructed out of wood or galvanized sheets and have bamboo fencing

Utilities water, exposed pipes along streets and pathways

Edge of BASECO along APLAYA. Proposed green belt was not achieved. According to the barangay the trees that were planted either died or were washed out during the flood.

Stagnant water along the bases of dwelling units The water is dominated by garbage. The dwellings are in stilts to avoid the water below.

Current state of pathway at the edge of OS. The pathways are cemented. The pathways are either utilized as an extension of their businesses (stores, canteens). Also serves as an interaction space for the residents.

PROCESS: PUBLIC CONSULTATION: Before developments are implemented in the area, the residents are first informed of them through public consultation. These consultations are held in the barangay covered court and are usually done by block (e.g., Blk 1 New Site, Old Site, Gasangan, Habitat for Humanity, Gawad Kalinga) to avoid overcrowding. Each block is headed by their respective block coordinator, and although not everyone is present during these consultations, they are eventually informed of what were discussed through their attending neighbors.

ACTION PLANNING Action planning is a process which will help you to focus your ideas and to decide what steps you need to take to achieve particular goals that you may have. The barangay distributed different tasks to be overseen by each member. Each specific development area is spear-headed by each leader. The Baseco barangay has its action team as seen in the picture.

According to Kagawad, they have formulated future endeavors like replanting the planned green belt, drainage for different areas and the improvement of road works for the next year.

Issues Road -development not finished due to houses are obstructing the way. They can't just remove them because they have no place to relocate them inside Baseco. There is also an old chapel residing on the proposed path which they cannot just remove.

-Relocation is not easy cause there is no more space inside Baseco.

-Current State of Streets. The streets are mud-covered, water pools become stagnant. Some houses placed stones in front and around in order to provide an elevated path.

Structures -Current State of Dwellings. Dwellings along the edge of Aplaya are mostly constructed out of wood or galvanized sheets and have bamboo fencing. -Stagnant water along the bases of dwelling units The water is dominated by garbage. The dwellings are in stilts to avoid the water below.

Utilities -Water, exposed pipes along streets and pathways -Some parts of OS OSEX and APLAYA still have no electricity but instead use submeters. -street lights are possible but there is no budget for making them function. there are parts that already have street lights but do not have power. -trash that are found on the shores of APLAYA are not all from the residents but mostly from the sea. -collection of garbage is troublesome due to unfinished or undeveloped roads. Trucks cannot go into tight spaces to collect trash.

Landscaping -Edge of BASECO along APLAYA. Proposed green belt was not achieved. According to the local goverment, the trees that were planted either died or were washed out during the flood. - The pathways are cemented. The pathways are either utilized as an extension of their businesses (stores, canteens). Also serves as an interaction space for the residents. the fi rst meter of pathways are developed and not all.

Security -Mugging, drug pushing, murder, and all sorts of crimes are abundant in areas that are not developed.

Recommendations: -Pier for the Market Place by the bay & Marine officers We have seen that the houses in front of the bay have a good view of the cityscape and the pier. We would like to take that as an opportunity to propose an architectural solution to the problem. We would like to have a small pier that is open to the market place for exchange of goods, in this proposal, we can give the people a job and also to have it as an asset. We would also like to recommend them to have a marine patrol that can sail the bay to provide control and to stop other people to come in to baseco using sailing boats illegally. Current Situation:


Market Place along the Sidewalk

Pier for the Market Place by the bay & Marine officers

-Hire more security personnel We would also want to recommend to employ/hire more officers to the barangay because as we ask the officer, He said that they only have one people who facilitate their precinct and only 5-6 people who roam around Baseco every night for Curfew. -Ask for sponsorship for the funds of their future project development As we have told that their projects are quite delay because of the budget allotted for their projects, the development seems to deteriorate also because of the people that take advantage on their area. Without continuing the project as soon as possible, they may have problem with what they have already started. If baseco can find sponsors as quick as possible, the development will improve and so as the community. -Have an open meeting with the stakeholders, the barangay, and the community representatives. In this matter we could enlighten the people on whats going on to their environment, we can also provide them knowledge to cope up with the project of their community. The stakeholders will also know the update to their barangay and may also realize what are the real situation on their area to give them ideas on what would be the main problems on the community that can be very beneficial to the people.
