Bulacan is a province in the Philippines just north of the national capital region of Manila. At 34% poverty incidence, fisherfolk comprise one of the poorest sectors of Philippine society yet contribute greatly to the country\u2019s food security. However, these communities are in danger of being displaced, their sources of livelihood destroyed, and the environment at risk in order to make way for massive land reclamation projects that claim to be development projects that will improve the economy and local communities\u2019 everyday lives. The San Miguel Corporation (SMC) has plans to develop a 2,500-hectare Aerotropolis. The project is planned to be a metropolitan subregion where the layout, infrastructure, and economy are centered on an airport which serves as a multimodal \u201cairport city\u201d commercial core. Construction of the Aerotropolis would require removal of the already-vulnerable coastal communities.<\/p>\n\n\n\n

The Bulacan community science team used satellite imagery, hazard data, and field work data to assess the physical condition of the study areas. They used Geographic Information System (GIS) for map creation and assessment of the study areas. The team collected data via field surveys and online data sets.<\/p>\n","url":"https:\/\/thrivingearthexchange.org\/project\/bulacan-ph\/","featured_image":"https:\/\/www.savemanilabay.ph\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/06\/DSC_7003600x450.jpg","post_date":"June 24, 2020"},{"ID":74,"post_title":"Risks of Reclamation North of Manila Bay","post_content":"\n

Dr. Kevin S. Rodolfo is a professor from the University of Illinois at Chicago. His study titled \u201cOn the geological hazards that threaten existing and proposed reclamations of Manila Bay\u201d highlights that reclaimed areas in Manila Bay are more prone to land subsidence, storm surges, and earthquake damages.<\/p>\n\n\n\n

Cristina Cinco, Vice President of Wild Bird Club presents Manila Bay as an internationally important waterbird site. \u00a0The Philippines is in the middle of the East Asian-Australasian Flyway and is a stopover for at least 13.5 million migratory birds that come from the northern hemisphere. Waterbirds, including those of endangered or critical status, will be affected by looming reclamation projects.<\/p>\n\n\n\n
