Description : In March and April 1999, the UNEP-IETC and the Technical Cooperation Council of the Philippines of the Department of Foreign Affairs collaborated to conduct an International Training on Environmental Management (ITEM) for Least Developed Countries (LDCs). Twenty-five participants representing six LDCs attended the two-week program which highlighted an ecological perspective, and presented environmental management fundamentals and sustainable development challenges and applications. A significant portion of ITEM focused on environment management (EM) tools and approaches, such as, Environment Planning, Freshwater Management, Environmental Health Planning and Management, Environmental Technology Assessment, Urban Planning, Environmental Management Systems, Protected Areas Management, Solid Waste Management and Ecotourism. These were delivered through a variety of methods by a seasoned team of UNEP resource persons and national Philippine experts. Training participants contributed their own perspectives through country papers and discussions leading up to the development of action programs in their respective areas.

Description : Lack of transparency and accountability in the planning practice allow for misuse and abuse of the planning system to serve the interests of the more powerful and influential groups, including those entrusted with the powers of planning. The outcomes of a non-inclusive, non-transparent and insensitive planning include: insecurity of land tenure rights and subsequently investments in land; poverty; informal land subdivision and building; unplanned spatial growth and endless conflicts in land development. These are detrimental to the residents and erode their trust and confidence in the government. It takes an organized, informed, confident and courageous group of residents or community to reject the non-inclusive form of planning and cause adoption of inclusive and collaborative planning that allows them space in the planning process. The achievement of such an organized group - a turn towards democratic planning practice - leads to a conclusion that informed, organized, confident and courageous civil society is a pillar of democracy. This book therefore argues that ineffective planning results, among other things, from defective land policy and legislation, and planning inability to recognize and make use of opportunities for shaping the built environment.

Description : This paper describes a strategic approach to urban environmental planning and management that is based on participation, building commitment, and choosing effective policy interventions. Five key policy areas are emphasized : (i) mobilizing public support and participation, (ii) choosing policy instruments that will change behavior, relieve conflicts, and encourage cooperative arrangements, (iii) building local institutional capacity, (iv) strengthening urban service delivery, and (v) increasing local knowledge about urban environment. Case studies are presented to show how institutional, informational, political, and technical problems related to urban environment management can be addressed in a strategic manner.
