Adaptation is the adjustment in natural or human systems in response to actual or expected climatic stimuli or their effects, which moderates harm or exploits beneficial opportunities.


The potential amount of income that could be made available for housing investment after excluding basic necessities such as food, clothing, education, medical expenses, transportation, income tax and recurrent costs of housing (electricity, water, garbage disposal).


Backlog is thenumber of dwelling units needed at the beginning of the planning period due to doubled-up HHs, displaced units and homeless HHs/individuals

Displaced units (relocation need)

Units located a) in danger areas such as esteros, railroad tracks, garbage dumps, river banks and flood prone areas or households/individuals living in public places such as sidewalks, roads, parks, play grounds, b) in areas where government infrastructure projects are to be implemented, and c) in areas where there is a court order for eviction and demolition.

Base Year

Base year is the year before the first planning period or the last census year


Capacity is combination of all strengths and resources available within a community, society or organization that can reduce the level of risk, or effects of a disaster. Capacity may include infrastructure and physical means, institutions, societal coping abilities, as well as human knowledge, skills and collective attributes such as social relationships, leadership and management. Capacity may also be described as capability.

Climate Change

Climate Change is  a change in climate that can be identified by changes in the mean and/or variability of its properties and that persists for an extended period typically decades or longer, whether due to natural variability or as a result of human activity.


Disaster is a serious disruption of the functioning of a community or a society involving widespread human, material, economic or environmental losses and impacts, which exceeds the ability of the affected community or society to cope using its own resources. Disasters are often described as a result of the combination of: the exposure to a hazard; the conditions of vulnerability that are present; and insufficient capacity or measures to reduce or cope with the potential negative consequences. Disaster impacts may include loss of life, injury, disease and ther negative effects on human, physical, mental and social well-being, together with damage to property, destruction of assets, loss of services, social and economic disruption and environmental degradation.

Disaster Mitigation

Disaster Mitigation is the lessening or limitation of the adverse impacts of hazards and related disasters. Mitigation measures encompass engineering techniques and hazard-resistant construction as well as improved environmental policies and public awareness.

Disaster Prevention

Disaster Prevention is the outright avoidance of adverse impacts of hazards and related disasters. It expresses the concept and intention to completely avoid potential adverse impacts through action taken in advance such as construction of dams or embankments that eliminate flood risks, land-use regulations that do not permit any settlement in high-risk zones, and seismic engineering designs that ensure the survival and function of a critical building in any likely earthquake.

Disaster Risk Reduction

Disaster Risk Reduction is the concept and practice of reducing disaster risks through systematic efforts to analyze and manage the causal factors of disasters, including through reduced exposures to hazards, lessened vulnerability of people and property, wise management of land and the environment, and improved preparedness for adverse events.

Doubled-up households

Also known as double occupancy and exists when one dwelling unit is shared by two or more households


Exposure is the degree to which the elements at risk are likely to experience hazard events of different magnitudes.


Hazard is a dangerous phenomenon, substance, human activity or condition that may cause loss of life, injury or other health impacts, property damage, loss of livelihood and services, social and economic disruption, or environmental damage.

Future Need

Future need refers to the number of new dwelling units needed to supply the demand of new household formed due to population increase.


Homeless are the individuals or households living in parks, along sidewalks, and all those without any form of shelter


A household as defined by NSO is a social unit consisting of a person or a group of person who sleep in the same dwelling unit and have common arrangement for the preparation and consumption of food.

Housing Stock

Housing stock is the number of occupied dwelling units at the beginning of the 1st planning period.  It can be computed as the number of households during the beginning of the first planning period minus the number of homeless households and/or individuals, and divide the difference by the number of households per dwelling unit.

Local Shelter Plan

A local shelter plan is a document which includes an analysis of the present local housing situation, i.e., the identification of housing problems, upgrading and future housing needs, household’s affordability and local resources such as land, provision of basic services and finance. After analysis and comparison of the available resources and needs, the LGU formulates the main shelter strategies. An implementation plan will complete the local shelter plan.

Planning Period

Planning period covers the duration that will be needed to realize the housing vision of the LGU.

Program Period

Program period is the time frame set by the LGU to meet the target housing needs due to backlog, population growth and upgrading needs.


Resilience is the ability of a system, community or society exposed to hazards to resist, absorb, accommodate and recover from the effects of a hazard in a timely and efficient manner, including through the preservation and restoration of its essential basic structures and functions.

Shelter needs

Shelter needs are 1.) the new housing units needed (lot, basic services and dwelling unit) and 2.) the upgrading needs (either land tenure, some of basic services, or structural improvement of unit or combinations of these).

Shelter strategy

A shelter strategy is a plan of action which defines the objectives for the development of shelter conditions; identifies the resources available to meet the objectives and the means by which they can be used most cost-effectively. It also sets out the responsibilities and time frame for implanting the various measures.

Upgrading Need

Upgrading need is defined as the need for improving land tenure status, e.g., provision of minimum security of tenure as in a written contract to possessing a title to the land; access to basic services, e.g., macadam road to paved road; and house condition, e.g., from a semi-permanent structure to a permanent one.


Vulnerability is the characteristics and circumstances of a community, system or asset that make it susceptible to the damaging effects of a hazard. Vulnerability may arise from various physical, social, economic, and environmental factors such as poor design and construction of buildings, inadequate protection of assets, lack of public information and awareness, limited official recognition of risks and preparedness measures, and disregard for wise environmental management.

Locla Shelter Plan – Abstract


The Titay Local Shelter Plan is formulated to address the shelter needs of household that have displaced units in the municipality. This plan provides information on the analysis of the present local housing situation, the identification of housing problems, upgrading of structures if there were to be found, future housing needs, household’s affordability and local resources such as land, provision of basic services and finance. It also contains the main shelter strategies and a corresponding implementation plan which provides details of actions needed to realize the housing plan.

This paper formulates a ten year plan to respond the housing needs of the households having their units situated in a lot not of their own but belong to someone else or private individual and or by the government. It is expected also that this paper will enable the LGU to effectively implement its new mandates of local shelter plan.

This Local Shelter Plan is to give shelter strategy making a plan action which defines the objectives for the development of shelter conditions; identifies the resources available to meet the objectives and the means by which they can be used most cost- effectively.

Proposed Infrastructure and projects of the municipality.

(If Jonard can provide map let him do) Proposed Road Conversion (see Fig.PP-) from provincial to national road.

Organizations, Institutions and Governance

Confronted with the daunting problems of the municipality, housing and relocation program, the present administration embarked an agenda that initially covers the under privileged families affected by the implementation of government infrastructure projects such as the following:

  1. Occupants of Bliss area
  2. Occupants of municipal roads
  3. Occupants of roads along national highway

The Local Government Unit (LGU) of Titay are also concern of the displaced units that are now existing in the municipality. Actually LGU is now taking steps to address the shelter needs of some of these displaced housing units found in BLISS and owned by the LGU. The municipality of Titay has used their available and present offices such as extracting personnel from Assessor Office, MPDCO, MSWDO and Engineering Office to make their tenure permanent such as facilitating titles in their names.

The present administration is already alarmed with the availability of displaced units found in the municipality specifically along the national highway from Barangay Moalboal going to Poblacion, next to Namnama and ended to Palomoc. There are already some spot removal of displaced units found along the national highway and some other private owned lots but the administration has not yet affected may be because there were not yet a massive number of households forced to exit by private owners from their respective lots.

As mentioned earlier that targeted area for their relocation is available of basic needs because of the presence of ZAMSURECO which is adept their services at all times in relation to power, ITWD for water and  sanitation by garbage disposal and  road access by the LGU.

  • So far, only “GAWAD KALINGA” was taking steps in facilitating housing units for the poor and offer socialized housing whereas the PAG-IBIG and some other lending bank institutions are offering an economic housing loans.

At present, there are already housing developers doing there service in Ipil and an adjacent town of Titay which when the LGU of Titay needs it, they easily be reached.

  • The urban poor sector and middle income groups who are the largest clientele of the plan are not yet organized but when they will be called for that purposes, the planners are confident that they will cooperate considering that shelter needs is a necessity.
  • Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC). HUDCC has been giving assistance to the Local Government Unit (LGU) particularly in the preparation of this plan, and also in updating the LGU regarding housing related policies, guidelines and programs for shelter plan.

2.2.6  Local Economic Outlook Income Class of LGU.  Titay is a 2nd class municipality. Annual Income (Local revenue & IRA)

Table below shows that Titay has 2 ways of collecting revenues and that are Local Sources which is comprises of Tax Revenue, non-tax revenue and other taxes which made a total of 10,155,199.29 and the other sources is External sources which is then comprised only of Internal Revenue Allotment having an amount of 76,240139.  These 2 sources of income of the municipality has a total of 86,395338.29 for the year 2010.

Map -10  Land Used Map

6. Land Use Map

Special Use – Special use are areas comprise 864.035 hectares or 2.65% of the total land area assessed in the municipality. The sanitary land fill is not yet included here but it is only religious and charitable institutions, government utilized areas and area for educational purposes ( See Table 12 –  Statistical Records 2010 )

Tourism Development – The municipality has undeveloped areas for tourism activities. These are tourism- related facilities such as various in land resorts located in the different parts of the municipality. There are private owned resort such as “ Green Resort” that is found in La Libertad and  “____” found in Mabini. There are also Moalboal Caves, Malagandis Falls known as “Curtain Like Falls” and the LGU is on its fast track to develop such falls and more as an example of a private places where people enjoy leisure activities. There is also an ongoing paper work for the construction of “Sky Cable” which is soon to be put up in “Gugawang Bugas”.

Quarrying – there are existing quarrying in Barangay Achasol, Palomoc, Namnama and Kipit but area cannot be determine yet. The potential and has the biggest area for quarrying is in  Kipit River but as of now, it is not yet fully used.

Potable Water: Ipil and Titay Water District (ITWD) has its source of potable water from the municipality.

Fish Pond: Inland water use refers to the existing fish ponds and bodies of water but they just utilized as personal consumptions.

2.2.4 Existing and Proposed Infrastructure

Infrastructure  and Utilities.   The map below shows public and private owned infrastructures. These include already the market sites, area where government establishments has been put up and the latest is a one hectare utilized as “Bagsakan” or Farm Products Landing Area especially rubber lumps where Titay has been known and catches the national attention of its efficiency.

This includes also other utilities such as area where power major lines passes, water system/reservoirs and Information communication technologies/cell sites.  There are also road network that traversing in the municipality.

Roads and Bridges – Titay has a national road traversing from Barangay Moalboal, La Libertad, Kitabog, Namnama to Palomoc. This is already a concrete road which presently having its road widening of 16 m. wide in Namnama and Palomoc and its almost done.

There are existing bridges along national highway and these situate at Barangay Moalboal and Barangay Poblacion Muslim. There are lots of bridges along Barangay roads with more than 15 bridges (Tulay Ng Pangulo) all were made up of steel and either spillway or bailey. Some  bridges along the primary and secondary roads are generally in good condition while those located in hinterland barangays need maintenance and rehabilitation.

Transportation – The town is a major public transport center. Several bus companies provide land transportation services with routes plying to and from Dipolog, Pagadian and Zamboanga City. Other services are facilitated by cargo trucks, vans, and several types of light vehicles for hire that serve the entire island of Mindanao.

Power – The town has a power transmission that traverse together with the National Highway. Power supply and distribution is critical for it deals with commercial and industrial services. Currently there are two power distribution utilities that serve the municipality of Titay, namely; Zamboanga del Sur Electric Cooperative (ZAMSURECO) and Solar Electrification Administered by DAR.

ZAMSURECO – is now serving 100% of the Barangays in the municipality but to those Household staying in the interior and not in the urbanized area of their barangay have option to use solar electrification.

Water- Water supply in the municipality has 2 options. Ipil and Titay water is extracting water from ground water reservoir and this is distributed individually to the residents. Production of wells are also an option in the municipality due to low water table.

Communications- Sophisticated services give the municipality modern facilities for communications. The existing communication facilities in Titay are postal service,  cellular mobile providers and internet providers.

School Building- Elementary buildings are all available to all barangays while High School Buildings are only available to some barangays and it is around 7 barangays.

Irrigation- Irrigation have main sources and that are found in Palomoc and Dalisay, all of the sources of water are from big rivers found in their respective areas. These irrigations are supplying the lowland portion of Palomoc, Namnama,Poblacion and Azusano. While the irrigation from Barangay Dalisay will be soon serving barangays  down their upland areas that owners will be surely convinced to divert it to lowland rice production due to the exceptional supply of water suitable for irrigating their area.
