Nupco’s Weblog

Just another weblog

Organizational Structure

Formed in 2006, NUPCO now has seven member urban poor organizations/formations with majority of membership coming from Metro Manila, while the rest are from other cities/provinces in Luzon, Visayas, and in Mindanao. These are Bangsa, Kalipunan ng Samahang Maralita sa Pilipinas (Kasama Pilipinas), Kongreso ng Pagkakaisa ng Maralitang Lungsod (KPML), League of Urban Poor for Action (LUPA), Lakas Ugnayan ng Maralita Laban sa Kahirapan (LUMABAN KA), Pambansang Katipunan ng Maralitang Pilipino (PKMP), and Umalab Ka.

There are two levels in the organizational set-up of NUPCO – national and sub-area levels. At the national level, the National Council composed of one representative from each bloc/organization defines or sets the direction of the coalition.

At the local level, there are five sub-areas composed of local leaders of organizations present in the area. The sub-areas – Manila, Quezon City, Caloocan-Malabon-Navotas-Valenzuela (CaMaNaVa), South (focus on Taguig), and East (focus on Marikina) – are determined based on the presence of NUPCO members in these areas. A coordinator is assigned in each sub-area.

Decisions are made through consensus reached either at the national or local level. A consensus to form committees to further enhance the coalition’s capability to implement programs/ blueprints was already reached this year.

NUPCO reaches out to independent urban poor organizations especially those located in areas where the coalition has active engagements for security of land/housing tenure.
