What is the public problem that the commitment will address?: The commitment will attempt to address two glaring issues confronting the government at present towards the establishment of a sustainable resettlement program- 1) the continuous downward spiral in the state of well-being of families resettled in inadequate government sites and 2) how to carry out peoplecentered, rights-based, and community-led shelter undertaking of families about to be displaced due to typhoon Yolanda and Oplan Likas programme. The supply driven shelter program of the National Government and Local Government Units have not been responsive to the needs, aspirations and paying capacities of the Informal Settler Families. Continued implementation without the requisite social preparation and developmental activities such as Community Organizing and Community Development leads to inefficient use of public funds as beneficiary families inadvertently pay for the inadequacies in locational advantage, basic facilities and social services in off-site resettlement projects.; What is the commitment?: PCUP in coordination with the national government agencies (NHA, SHFC and the DILG) will implement Community Organizing and Community Development programs for the following: • 18 Resettlement Sites established 2013-2016 under “Oplan Likas” • 12 Resettlement Sites established 2016-present under “Oplan Likas” • 29 Old Resettlement Sites established 1994-2012 • 25 Pre-Resettlement People’s Organizations in the NCR established 2013-present.; How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?: The CO-CD undertaking aims to strengthen and capacitate informal settler families to become active partners of the National and Local Governments in the planning and implementation of truly responsive shelter and housing initiatives/solutions. This pioneering approach to be attempted by the PCUP will result in a much more participative and client driven implementation of the Government’s Socialized Housing Program. Being “People Centered”, this innovation will thus result in more responsive and “grounded” policies and programs that will be more sensitive and attuned to the complexities of housing the informal settler families.; Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?: Transparency Community Organizing and Community Development will be documented through profiling of Community Issues and Actions. Such documents will be made public through Open Data Philippines Accountability Issues based organizing being the grounding of PCUP’s CO-CD approach involves the identification of relevant stakeholders and holding them to their mandates in the resolution of issues on Basic and Social Services as well as adequacy of housing units constructed Participation The empowerment of client communities through the CO-CD approach increases their levels of participation and “owning” of the project /undertaking thus ensuring sustainability and responsiveness of the housing program.; Additional information: This commitment is in line with Chapter 5 of the Philippine Development Plan 2017-2022 on Ensuring People-Centered, Clean, and Efficient Governance. This pursuit also supports the pronouncement of President Duterte during the National Housing Summit in NHA, to wit: 1. All disaster-related housing now free. 2. No demolition without relocation 3. Prioritization of onsite development, incity relocation 4. Comprehensive resettlement townships with full public utilities and services 5. Climate resilient homes 6. Livelihood and employment as central response to urban poverty, anchored on national industrialization and genuine land reform.
