Addressing the housing problem in the Philippines
In the Philippines, less than 1/3 can afford proper shelter. In Metro Manila alone, there are 3.1 informal settlers; 23% stay in government land, 22% in private properties, 15% in danger zones (which include the streets, bridges, riversides, and along train tracks), and 40% on infrastructure sites. There still exists a huge problem on housing in the Philippines. Various factors affect this such as financing, government policies and interventions, institutional subsidies, and the values and culture the Filipino people illustrate.
The concern for housing should grow because of the fact that the Philippines is considered to be part of the ‘typhoon belt.’ More and more people would suffer in such disasters if proper housing is not addressed. Furthermore, half a billion pesos is being spent yearly on disaster and calamity damages. Just imagine where else we could allocate that cost if only we can do a better job in preventing such damages through a better housing program.
So how do we actually solve this housing problem? There are countless of reasons on how to, but the main factors would hugely depend on the government both national and local, people, and non- governmental organizations willing to help in the housing program of the Philippines. First of all, the government has the biggest role amongst all. It is the role of the government to create policies that will suit well the country’s needs. It is also the government’s role to properly manage and regulate the Filipino people in following such policies. Laws have to be examined and cleared especially with regards land use. This is specifically addressed to illegal squatting issues.
Another issue that we touched here is taxation. We acknowledged that there is a need for systematic information on land and real estate properties in the Philippines; this would enhance a better taxation. Better taxation can lead to more budgets for programs in helping the housing problem in the Philippines. People’s money should go to the right places, and these are projects and programs to uplift human existence.
Our next solution is fixing the financial side of housing . The government still has a role here; and that is to create the right regulatory policies in financing for housing projects or programs. This is specifically in line with
Sourcing of funds is also a solution to this problem. International organizations and
on financial funding from banks; and these banks should always a have a reliable basis in lending credit.
The Philippine Association of Detective and Protective Agency Operators (PADPAO) recognize the need for housing for its 500,000 members nationwide, in partnership with PAGIBIG http://www.pagibigfund.gov.ph/under the office of Vice President Jejomar Binay. PADPAO believes that the campaign seeks to serve as a unifying catalyst to create a community building and development model by providing innovative and sustainable housing solutions to uplift its members.
The Philippine Association of Detective and Protective Agency Operators (PADPAO) (www.padpaophils.org)
The emergence of Private Security Agencies immediately after World War II was the answer for a bright incentive to the challenge brought about by the abnormal condition of peace and order as a result of the Japanese invasion.
The incentive of industrialization and the irresistible force of progress, made the Private Security Agencies play a significant role, in cooperation with law enforcement agencies, in the preservation of peace and order in the whole archipelago. Hence, along with the growth of the economy and industry the number of private security agencies increased considerably. In the forties and fifties, cities and municipalities, in the absence of a law, took the initiative in promulgating ordinances to regulate the organization and operation of Private Security Agencies in their respective jurisdictions. However, the Private Security Agency Operators found some of these ordinances cumbersome which did not auger well for the effectiveness of their operation. Realizing the need for unity in order to improve the performance of Private Security Agencies, the Operators in 1958 organized themselves into an association, known as “The Philippine Association of Detective and Protective Agency Operators (PADPAO), Inc.”, which was officially recognized by the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 4, 1958, an aggrupation of all security agencies nationwide, which would oversee its
After 10 years of work, the efforts of PADPAO were finally rewarded when President Ferdinand E. Marcos approved and signed Republic Act No. 5487, otherwise known as the Private Security Agency Law, on June 13, 1969. The Chief of Constabulary, in consultation with PADPAO, was mandated to prepare the Implementing Rules and Regulations.
