ACHR/DPU Junior Professionals Reporting from the Field

We have the privilege of being the first interns in a collaboration between the Asian Coalition of Housing Rights (ACHR) and the Bartlett Development Planning Unit (DPU). We are 5 young graduates from DPU working in Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and Philippines for 6 months, supporting the growth of ACHR in these countries. Our blog reflects on community-led development throughout South-East Asia, and the challenges faced both locally and more generally by the urban poor in their efforts to secure a place for themselves and their families within processes and mechanisms of the reproduction of the city.

Reporting on community-driven strategies to securing housing, land and a stake in (re)production processes of the city

Hundreds of families of scavengers eke out a living at a large garbage dump in Manila, Philippines called Happyland. The ironic name comes from the word hapilan, a local term for a dump site. Happyland scavengers forage the large mound of garbage for any recyclable materials such as plastics, bottles, and metal parts where they exchange them at nearby junk shops. Scavengers earn a measly eighty pesos (USD 2.00) for a day’s work.

US, Japan to establish military bases in the Philippines
By Joseph Santolan
29 June 2013

On June 27, at a press conference in Quezon City, Philippines, Philippine Defense Minister Voltaire Gazmin and his Japanese counterpart, Itsunori Onodera, announced that the Philippines would establish basing arrangements with both the US and Japanese militaries. China was the explicit target of this move allowing the US and Japan to station military personnel and equipment in the Philippines.
