Titay Local Shelter Plan Chapter 1 Continuation

Chapter 1 Introduction

1.6 Shelter Planning Process

1.6.1 Key players, Roles & Responsibilities.  The keys actors  and their respective involvement or roles in the crafting of the Local Shelter Plan are enumerated below:

  • Local Chief Executive (describe his roles in the crafting the LSP)
  • Sangguniang Bayan
  • Department Heads (describe their roles in the crafting the LSP)
  • Municipal Planning & Development Office
  • Municipal Engineering Office
  • Municipal Assessor’s Office
  • Municipal Social Welfare & Development Office
  • HUDCC Region IX

The Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) Region IX rendered the necessary technical assistance through the conduct of a training workshop on the formulation of the Local Shelter Plan.

  • The housing agencies in Region IX

The housing agencies under the umbrella of HUDCC gave an extensive orientation on their various programs and assistance that the LGU can avail.  These are in the form of technical assistance, financing through loans and also grants from the National Housing Authority, Pag-IBIG Fund, Social Housing Finance Corporation and the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board.

1.6.2 The Process.  Figure 1 shows the shelter plan formulation process basically involves six main activities: data gathering, situational analysis, goal and objectives formulation, generation of shelter strategies; preparation of an implementation plan; and designing of monitoring and evaluation of scheme. A flow chart which includes the other but equally important sub-activities to complete the whole process can be found in Figure 1.

The first main activity is Data Gathering. It involves retrieving documents and gathering information from different agencies which will be the basis of computation or inputs for analysis.

The second main activity is undertaking a Situational Analysis which is  a process of looking into the current housing situation, e.g., housing need; housing-related problems of the locality; and the type of assistance the LGU can extend. In this phase, an assessment of affordability and resources is done. This is a critical activity as the information and outputs of this particular phase will be the basis for formulating the main strategies.

The third main activity is Goal and Objectives Formulation wherein the vision, goals, objectives or targets of the local housing programs are set. This activity is an essential step in preparing local shelter plans because it provides the planners and evaluators of the housing program with a clear perspective of the desired change and the processes involved.

The fourth main activity is Generating Shelter Strategies. This is undertaken after the planner has been informed on the shelter needs of the city/municipality and a conclusion has been arrived at after an analysis of affordability and resource requirements has been done.

The fifth main activity is Developing the Implementation Plan. Whereas in formulating strategies the planner answers the question: “HOW CAN THE PROBLEM BE SOLVED?” the implementation plan answers the question: “WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE?” by outlining the details involved in actually undertaking the strategy.

The sixth and last main activity is formulating the Monitoring and Evaluation System which will provide the implementors immediate and relevant information to ensure effective and efficient delivery of shelter and shelter-related services.
