    Makati-GUDC

    Green Urban Design and

    Governance Workshop

  • CHALLENGES

    The transfer of technical knowledge from trained professionals

    to the barangay official had not been easy as some concepts are

    highly technical.

    There had been great reluctance to think outside of the box

    for type of project to be proposed and for fund sourcing.

    Replicating and bringing the Makati-GUDC Workshop outside of

    Metro Manila entails logistical difficulties

    Makati-GUDC

    Green Urban Design and

    Governance Workshop

  • LESSONS LEARNED

    Projects are of better fit and are easily received by the

    community especially if the community itself is involved in the

    development.

    Lectures and discussions should be less technical, using

    language that can easily be grasped by officials various

    educational attainment

    Barangay officials should be encouraged to think of innovative

    and exciting projects to keep the communities vibrant

    Makati-GUDC

    Green Urban Design and

    Governance Workshop

  • LESSONS LEARNED

    The center should strive to look for partners who can help

    barangays/communities fund their projects.

    A new workshop design should be formulated to accommodate

    interested barangays outside of Manila and for them to benefit

    in the program.

    Green Urban Design and

    Governance Workshop

  • FUTURE ENDEAVORS

    The workshop will be upscaled and offered

    to other city officials councilors and

    congressmen.

    As the workshop is beneficial not only to

    Makati Barangays, the workshop will be

    opened for the training of officials from

    other cities, gradually greening and making

    the whole country resilient.

    Green Urban Design and

    Governance Workshop

  • THE MAKATI-GUDC PROCESS

    The Makati-GUDC workshop is highly

    replicable anywhere in the world as it does

    not prescribe a specific template for the

    formulation and implementation projects.

    It is the communities who identify their

    needs, capacities and ways for which they

    can best realize their green vision.

    Makati-GUDC

    Green Urban Design and

    Governance Workshop

  • Once again, Makati serves as a model

    for other LGUs in having a program that

    can truly help our communities.

    This is a shift from being local

    politicians to planners of our individual

    communities.
