Abstract: In the context of rapid urbanization after World War II, housing demand in primate mega-regions has reached an unprecedented level in human history. The failure of wide-ranging housing development approaches in the past has resulted in the further proliferation of informal settlements as shelters for many urban inhabitants. Apart from dilapidated living environments in a growing number of informal settlements, the urban housing crisis today has grow more serious with the increasing proportion of a??landlessa?? and a??disempowereda?? people who lack access to formal land markets and decision-making processes. In response to this complication, a renewed housing strategy called a??enablementa??--one that takes into account democratizing the planning process to enhance citizen empowerment-- has been taken on board. Looking closely at experiences of Metro Manila, the Philippines, this study highlights that facilitating effective executing mechanisms and urban governance to operationalize legislative goals and institutional settings is most needed.
