Slums In Manilla

  1. 1. Welcome to ManilaExploring Slumswith Cristel Mendoza & Mai Dang<br />Slums are defined as building or areas that are deteriorated, hazardous, unsanitary, or lacking in standard condition.<br />
  2. 2. History<br />• As the population grew, jobs were hard to find. <br />• Incomes decreased dramatically.• The slums in Manila are the result of informal entrepreneurs, poor economy, and the lack of government assistance. <br />
  3. 3. • Many slums are built…<br />Location & Population<br /> • Slums are located wherever there is space and opportunity<br />• There are 526 communities of slums in all cities around Metro Manila<br />• 80,000 people occupy a square kilometer of a slum.<br />• Located in vacant lands that are both private & government owned<br />along railroads tracks<br />Under bridges<br />near garbage dumps<br />along rivers<br />
  4. 4. Many slums lack…<br />Living Conditions<br />• People who live in slums are families or individuals whose income or combined household falls below the poverty threshold<br />Education<br />Adequate Water<br />Sanitation<br />Housing & Employment<br />Health<br />Food<br />
  5. 5. Conditions<br />Social<br />• The number of children to worry about became a problem<br />Political<br />• The government created the MMDA(Metropolitan Manila Development Authority) to do the following things:•Development Planning•Transport & Traffic Management•Solid Waste Disposal•Flood Control & Sewage management•Urban renewal, Zoning, Land Use Planning, and Shelter Services•Health & Sanitation, Urban Protection, and Pollution Control<br />• Part of the government accepts the fact that there are slums, but are ignorant towards it.<br />
  6. 6. Statistic<br />•Manila has an approximate population of 11,553,427 with 35% of the population live in urban slums.<br />• That’s more than 4,000,000 people. <br />•2/3 population are unemployed or too young to work.<br />• Land values increased by 11% in selected locations in Metro Manila in 1995.<br />So…if people can’t pay where they live, they have to move to slums.<br />
  7. 7. Suggestions<br />• The government should actually care about the people and try to provide better living conditions, such as: food and clean water, and organize a party to clean rivers for sanitation.<br />• Don’t have too many children especially if you’re not financially stable, or a single parent.<br />• For people in the slums to make a difference in their life and look for jobs that does not require education. <br />
