Urbanization in the philippipines

  1. 1. • Urbanization is the migration or natural influx of a segment of population from rural areas to urban centers. Simply put, urbanization is urban migration. In the wake of this migration is the vast area of arable lands in the countryside that remain idle and uncultivated.
  2. 2. • First is they think that urban life would be better-of course with the presence of better facilities such as schools, hospitals and infrastructure in general. But having a better quality of life is not attained simple by moving to an urban where jobs are available. Yes, there is job available, but the question is ‘are those who are moving knowledgeable, skilled and to qualify this jobs? • Poverty • Fewer employment opportunities in rural
  3. 3. • In the year 2010, more than 60 percent of the total population live in urban centers around the country-- a burgeoning population that is constantly growing with urbanization, increasing urban poverty, burdening problems along urban health and sanitation, and, on top of these, worsening economic inequity. Urban management and ecological systems as well the institutions that are primarily responsible are almost incapable to answer for the unabated growth in urban population that has already exerted environmental, economic and political pressure on governance. Present concerns related to urbanization include but are not limited to the following: better education, improved health and sanitation, higher income levels, housing and transportation, environmental pollution, and social and economic infrastructure requirements.

In the year 2000, 16 new cities were created and 15 more were converted in the first half of 2001, bringing the total number of cities to 115. Just this year, more cities were proposed to be created. By the year 2020, it is estimated that the country will have more or less 600 cities and urban centers. This natural tendency is best illustrated in the virtual farms of Farmville, just in case you have the opportunity to visit.
  5. 5. • the biggest problem regarding mass housing would be affordability. the minimum wage of filipinos are only enough for food, clothing and education but shelter will always take a back seat. there are some non- governmental organizations that support low cost housing but they have unwittingly weaken the structural integrity of the houses by doing away with the building code.
