The Liveable Cities Design Challenge

By

The Philippines is a country of almost 100 million people spread out over 7,100 islands. Traditionally, our economy has been viewed as mainly agricultural, with much of the business and investment focus on three key cities: Metro Manila, Cebu and Davao. In reality, however, the Philippines has become more urbanized over time; 63 percent of our population live in urban areas (including small urban areas), according to the 2012 World Population Data Sheet. Cities are typically centers of consumption, resource use, and waste.

Rapid road to demographic suicide

By

Whatever happens to the RH Law, our leaders in the next five to 10 years must make sure that no program to aggressively promote a contraceptive mentality among the poor will be part of the implementing rules and regulations. We cannot make the same mistakes of China and Thailand, which are now on an irreversible road to demographic suicide because of the birth control programs their governments pursued just 20 to 30 years ago.
