DHSUD gears up for Phl Urban Forum
The Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development is already preparing to craft the upcoming Philippine New Urban Agenda and has tapped various sectors to help.
The DHSUD, through its Environmental Land Use and Urban Planning Development Bureau, in partnership with the UN-Habitat, has already consulted with various sectors, including women, youth, children, the urban poor, seniors, and academe/professionals, to discuss issues and concerns confronting their respective sector.
The Philippine Urban Forum will serve as the largest gathering to present sectoral issues and formulate solutions that will contribute to the crafting of the Philippine New Urban Agenda.
DHSUD Undersecretary Henry Yap said the workshop aims to gather issues as well as solutions straight from its stakeholders for a people-centric and inclusive urban development plan.
During the workshop, the youth sector raised the need to increase the involvement of their group in decision-making and planning related to urban development, while representatives from the child sector suggested improving programs in the establishment and promotion of safe spaces for children.
