The paper focuses on Metropolitan Manila and the serious economic and social problems faced by the city. The Philippines has recently adopted a new national urban policy, the National Urban Development and Housing Framework, 1999-2004. This policy is designed to give new advantages to the lowest income members of urban Philippine society and act as a poverty alleviation device in a near-desperate situation. If properly implemented, this policy can have a profound effect upon Manila.
