Housing for the Urban Poor
From Local Action to Global Networks

November 4 – 30 2012, Field Study in Manila and Iloilo, Philippines

We have moved on to the second phase of our research project, which includes fieldwork in the Philippines, Thailand and South Africa.
In November 2012 Josefine Fokdal is in the Philippines establishing contact to the representatives of both the Asian Coalition for Housing Rights (ACHR) and Shack/Slum Dwellers International (SDI) in Manila. We will also take a closer look at the collaboration in Iloilo city between the Local Government Unit and the Homeless People’s Federation of the Philippines, which has led to a citywide upgrading of the urban poor communities.
