Welcome to the Liveable Cities Design Challenge

Resilience

Community resilience is the capability to anticipate risk, limit impact, and bounce back rapidly through survival, adaptability, evolution, and growth in the face of turbulent change. (Community & Regional Resilience Institute)


Mobility

The purpose of mobility is to gain access to destinations, activities, services and goods hence urban planning should be resident centered, in effect, reducing distances and transportation needs. Urban mobility provides convenient, affordable and efficient transport systems to enable commuting and economic activity – important characteristics of a liveable city. (UN Habitat).


E-Government

The use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for governments to effectively manage data and information, enhance public service delivery, and establish additional communication channels for engagement with citizens. Integrating ICT infrastructure in various units and departments will help them process, use and publish data, and produce valuable information. A structured data recording and disclosure policy increases the transparency and accountability since transactions, activities and resources are publicly accessible.


Basic Services

Basic services such as electricity and energy, water and sanitation, refuse and waste removal are critical services for a city.

The Liveable City Design Challenge is a planning and design competition with the objetive of having city planners across the Philippines better plan their respective cities and municipalities for a climate-defined future by being more aware and better prepared for disaster-risk reduction. At the same time, city planners are encouraged to design Liveable Cities that offer safety, convenience, livelihood, lifestyle, and sustainability that attract people to live, work, and play so their cities can be competitive.

The Liveable Cities Design Challenge was first launched in the Philippines in 2014. 19 cities were selected to join the competition. Cities include those that hosted APEC Meetings in 2015 and other cities that are vulnerable to disasters. Cities or municipalities have committed to undergoing orientation and participating in workshops.
