The Philippines is among the selected case study areas for a regional urban poverty study of the World Bank, which covers East Asia and the Pacific (EAP) countries under an Analytic Advisory Activity (AAA) on Making Cities Inclusive.   The objective of the regional study is to develop a socio-economic profile of urban poor in different cities within EAP. The assignment involves the conduct of a quantitative survey in three cities in Metro Manila to assess the socio-economic conditions of informal settler families (ISFs) and expected impacts of planned slum upgrading and resettlement activities.

The survey covers about 2,700 ISFs in Manila City, Quezon City and Muntinlupa City, with data collection focusing on characteristics and issues of livelihoods and housing, including access to services and risks related to natural disasters.   A sampling frame was developed for the survey, with guidance from the World Bank. The questionnaire was pre-tested and translated into a software application to enable computer-assisted personal interviewing for the conduct of the survey.

Learnings from the assignment will support knowledge exchange and capacity-building across countries in EAP to better develop insights on resettlement strategies, reducing urban poverty and improving neighborhood upgrading programs.
