Urban Resilience and Informal Settlements

Funded by Misereor and done in partnership with ICLEI South Asia, this project focuses on the areas of urban resilience and informal sector of selected cities in India, Indonesia, and Philippines. The community of Asprer, Quezon City was one of the informal community areas for this project. After establishing the baseline condition and a series of consultations with experts, local officials and community members, a community-based urban garden emerged as a viable project to be implemented in the area. ICLEI SEAS tapped the technical assistance of the Department of Community and Environmental Resource Planning (DCERP), College of Human Ecology (CHE) from the University of the Philippines Los Banos for the implementation of the project.
