QC launches “Blue” Campaign
quezon city bluegreenlogo

Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista formally launched his administration’s “blue” campaign anchored at protecting QC’s air and water quality by hosting a forum on urban renewal on August 31 at the Richmonde Hotel in Eastwood City to showcase some of the best practices on urban development in Metro Manila.

The mayor said, “after getting green, QC is now going blue.” This is at the same time that he continually press the national government, especially the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) and the National Housing Authority (NHA) to fasttrack the construction of more housing units for informal settler families occupying danger zones, such as waterways and roads-right-of-ways.     

“Considering the threats posed by typhoons, floods and unusual weather patterns, I believe our residents along these areas are now ready to be relocated to safer grounds,” the Mayor said.

The city government, thru the environmental protection and waste management department and the city planning and development office, had invited Arch. Felino Palafox, as guest speaker. Topics discussed by Palafox include vertical urbanism and urban planning, architecture and engineering to avert disaster.

“What we need is adoptive engineering and architecture. And, we should move twice as fast as we can to address the challenges of urban growth, especially in Metro Manila,” according to Arch. Palafox.   

During the forum, Mayor Bautista also discussed the city’s on-going efforts for the recovery of easements and rehabilitation of waterways as well as the various green building initiatives adopted by the city government in its bid to protect the environment.  Primary among these initiatives is the strict implementation of the provisions of the city’s green building and green rooftop ordinances.

QC’s green building ordinance, considered by the Mayor as a pioneering initiative, requires the design, construction or retrofitting of buildings, other structures and movable properties to meet minimum standards of a green infrastructure while the green rooftop ordinance requires all new buildings and housing construction to plant and maintain vegetations in their rooftops.  Both measures have been approved as early as 2009.

“Typhoons, flooding and unusual weather patterns are nature’s manifestations of how people are harming the environment.  They are signals that we must all work together to save our environment, and lessen the impact of climate change,” the Mayor said.

Quezon City Featured in World Environment Congress
iclei_world_congressAs it strengthens its partnerships with the International community, the Quezon City Government joined officials from all over the world in attending the 2012 World Congress last June 14-17 and the Rio +20 last June 20-22, 2012.

Closely linked to the Rio+20 Conference, the 2012 World Congress in Belo Horizonte, organized by International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), Local Governments for Sustainability, highlighted speakers and city cases about cutting-edge and integrated solutions to the challenges local government's face.

The Hon. Mayor Herbert Bautista and the City's DRRM Officer Dr. Elmo San Diego, PhD. discussed the Benefits of Carbon Finance Projects to the City and Quezon City's Programs in Disaster Risk Reduction, respectively.

Highlighting the successful rehabilitation of the Payatas Dumpsite to a Controlled Disposal Facility to a Sanitary Landfill, Mayor Bautista, was able to present not only the City Government's commitment to environmental protection and sustainable development, but as well as the importance of a strong partnership with public and private entities in the application of solutions to operational and environmental problem. The presentation on the City's Biogas Emission Reduction Project effectively showcased a Public-Private Partnership from which the City Government has benefited economically, socially and environmentally, while contributing, even in a small way, to the global reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the arrest of Climate Change.

The City's Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Program discussed by Gen. San Diego featured Quezon City's best practices on DRRM, particularly the effective risk assessment program that involves practical measurements in identifying the most disaster prone areas in the City. He will also be able to showcase to the international community the City's effective strategies that were developed with the involvement of community leaders who had first-hand experience on disaster management, such as the "walk the fault" project.  (read the article on the event)

Quezon City a model for INVEST-USAID

The Quezon City government has been one of the models for the other Local Government Units (LGU) of the Investment Enabling Environment Project (INVEST-USAID). INVEST aims to improve the investment and business climate by addressing the key constraints underlying the low level private investment in the country. The project is funded by USAID, a US govenment arm that provides significant economic assitance to developing coutries like the Philippines. 

The INVEST project has recognized the QC-LGU's efforts to streamline business processes by expanding the Business One-Stop-Shops (BOSS) and the newly linked Philippine Business Registry (PBR) systems. BOSS shortens the process of local registration, permits and licensing of new businesses while PBR serves as a seamless medium for business registration across the application systems of all national level agencies with business registration-related transactions. These innovative systems eliminate the cumbersome process of red-tapes by engendering an impeccable environment to new businesses.

Other areas of interest to the INVEST-USAID are the QC-LGU's efforts and unertakings in fiscal management and revenue generation as well as the promotion of the city as an attractive investment location.

Iloilo and Batangas City officials have already met with Quezon City officials to see how the latter executes the new systems that now benefit the local business sector. BOSS and PBR have not only streamlined the business process but likewise reduced the cost of putting up a business for aspiring investors and enhanced the revenue generation for the Quezon City.
