KAANTABAY SA KAUSWAGAN: EMPOWERING THE URBAN POOR IN NAGA CITY, PHILIPPINES

Abstract
By : Wilfredo Prilles Jr.

 
Initiated in 1989, the KsK programme (literally Partners in Development) shows how a tri-partite approach of pooling resources and capabilities of private landowners, city and central government and the poor can be used to improve urban living conditions. Strong political will and an enlightened perception of the poor has enabled a city government to reduce poverty, manage urbanisation and improve quality of life in urban areas. Eighty-one per cent of the 7,400 low-income houses have been improved to date. Strong community participation has been a vital factor in achieving this success.
Keywords : Secure Tenure, Empowerment, Urban Poor, Naga City
