Summary

BASECO is a densely populated slum community built on a garbage landfill, with 60,000 countryside migrants seeking a better life in the city living in poverty and hunger. They live in shanties that are constantly threatened by rising sea levels, flooding and storm surges that become worse each year. Climate change has made life more difficult but the people strive to adapt for their survival. Let us help build climate change resilience and food security in BASECO.

Challenge

Decent jobs and livelihood are scarce in BASECO. Majority of the 60,000 residents can barely earn enough to put food on the table, much less a balanced and nutritious meal three times a day. The effects of climate change like frequent flooding and more intense weather events have been disrupting their economic activities and daily lives. Children, who comprise 40% of the population, do not get enough nourishment and sustenance.

Solution

Food security is necessary in building climate change resilience. The residents of BASECO shall put up a climate-proof communal vegetable and herbal garden. With vertical planters set up on the walls of houses to solve the problem of space, flooding and incursion of sea water, the vegetables harvested from the community garden will add nourishment to their meals and the herbs can be used to treat common ailments. The children will have more balanced and healthier meals.

Long-Term Impact

The climate-proof communal vegetable and herbal garden will ensure food security and provide additional livelihood for the 60,000 residents of BASECO. This endeavor shall foster stronger unity and cooperation among the residents and revive the spirit of "bayanihan" or the communal and collective spirit of the people, which will strengthen climate change resilience of their community.
