Advocacies/Campaigns

Most common struggles of NUPCO members are on housing/land tenure, demolition, and on clearing operations due to development/infrastructure projects such as flood control, road widening, and beautification program. Provision of social services, especially water, is one of the major local struggles of some members of NUPCO.

NUPCO is an active advocate of the advancement of urban poor rights including the passage of Magna Carta for Urban Poor. The coalition, together with IPD, also pursues initiatives toward the empowerment of women as well as greater involvement of the youth in the communities.

The advocacies/ campaigns of NUPCO members can be categorized into four: 1) land tenure/housing, 2) development aggression, 3) contending laws, and 4) political/other advocacies.
