'The amazing challenge of Manila and the secrets of MBSDMP'

Lessons learned from the cooperation Philippines - The Netherlands

'With 25 million people Manila is one of the buzzing mega-cities of the world. Struggling with development ambitions and challenges towards 50 million people over the next decades. What is the plan for this hot-spot of earth quakes, vulcanic eruptions, cyclones and increasing floodings, major impacts of climate change?

Can improved water and waste management address these challenges in order to strengthen urban resilience, economic prosperity, ecological restoration and the livelihoods of the Philippino’s?

How are Dutch parties, Deltares, PUM, NGO’s involved in this amazing planning exercise, called Manila Bay Sustainable Development Master Plan (MBSDMP)? 

What are the learning lessons of the experts, participating in this master piece of master planning? How are the local Philippino consultants appreciating their cooperation with Dutch counterparts? Is there a cultural divide, and how is this impacting on the progress and the quality of the program? Can these lessons be applied elsewhere?'

These are just a few of the questions which will be asked and dealt with at the KNW’s Seminar on 1 November 2019 at Deltares in Delft. Save the date!
