One of the most pressing issues in the Philippines’
construction sector is a chronic housing shortage. Despite the large population
in the country, many are enduring life without a proper home, which is very
relevant around the areas of Metro Manila.
Labor surpluses and low incomes in the provinces force thousands of Filipinos to migrate to urban areas every year, thinking that these areas offer more opportunities than in the provinces. However, with the lack of affordable housing options, opportunity-seekers find it hard to look for their own spaces in the urban areas, causing them to opt to live in slums. This is the underlying reason why Metro Manila has the most number of informal settlers compared to the other nearby cities in the country.
Roaming around these bustling cities, it is very evident that the number of informal settlers is increasing who opt to build shanties in “danger zones” - along waterways, or under bridges, and powerlines.
Many factors affect each individual that hinders them from getting their own homes. Under this are issues of the land titles, housing prices, and lack of knowledge which impede each Filipinos to have a safe and secured space for themselves and their families.
Securing a safe space got even more challenging as thisglobal pandemic occur. Many lost their jobs and a lot of businesses has closed their operation because of the inevitable challenges brought about by the pandemic in the country. With a lack of financial security, many lose the chance of purchasing their dream homes, and worse, some home renters lose their spaces, causing them to opt to live in the slums. Further compounding the housing woes, congestion inside slums has left the health of millions on a knife's edge
Despite the countless issues pertinent to housing, the Philippine housing industry is optimistic that the housing backlogs will eliminate by the year 2030. With the increasing demand for living spaces, the Philippine housing sector has enormous potential growth through the initiatives of the government and many private sectors, businesses, and institutions.
