How do we view evicted urban poor communities as assets and rather than liabilities in the economic development of the Philippines? This study attempts to answer this critical question. This research explores the mass-eviction and resettlement of urban poor communities (commonly referred to as "squatters") due to infrastructure development and commercial estate development in metro-manila. Through policy reviews, extensive mapping of resettlement sites, and interview with local experts, this research begins to explore the role of urban planning, entrepreneurship, and community-based efforts in creating sustainable relocated communities.
