Watch: Securing Property Rights in the Philippines
February 11, 2015
Over 12 million families in the Philippines do not own the rights to their own homes, and without legal ownership, homeowners cannot secure a loan or hand down a property to their children. “The issue of property rights is central to both economic development and political development. When people don’t have titles, it creates lack of security. That’s why we decided to try and do something about it,” said The Asia Foundation’s Jaime Faustino in a new 10-minute documentary produced by the Overseas Development Institute. The video follows a team led by Faustino, as they confront land rights in the Philippines head-on using the development entrepreneurship model, with support from United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
Read more about this approach in the recent joint report from The Asia Foundation and ODI, “Development Entrepreneurship: How Donors and Leaders can Foster Institutional Change,” launched in December with support from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Australia (DFAT) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
