CITY PROFILE 01


NAVOTAS CITY BRIEF PROFILE Navotas is a highly urbanized city in the Philippines that is known as the Fishing Capital of the Philippines. The city has the Navotas Fish Port Complex which is the premier fish center of the country and one of the largest fish ports in the Asian region. Although it was established in 1827, Navotas was only declared as a highly urbanized city in 2007. Nevertheless, it is an emerging and developing city that continues to progress. With its geographical characteristics, water has become an integral part of the city’s culture and economy. Navotas was initially a contiguous part of Malabon. It was not sperated from Malabon by a body of water either. However, the turbulent waters of Manila Bay caused the erosion of a weak strip of land between the town, now called Navotas, and the district of Tondo in Manila. Eventually, an opening was breached and seawater continued to flow in through it and caused the carving out of a channel. This channel developed into a regular waterway that is now known as the Navotas River.

The original name of the city during the time when it was still part of Malabon was “San Jose de Navotas”, in honor of its patron saint, San Jose. In 1827, two barrios, San Jose de Navotas and Bangkulasi, petitioned to be separated from the town of Malabon to form a new town.

This natural phenomenon seemed to be the origin of the name that today is associated with this town, continually referred to as “Nabutas” which literally meant “pierced through” in English. Over time, the named evolved into “Navotas”.

In 1901, Navotas was integrated into the newly formed province, Rizal through the Philippine Commission Act No. 137. Through this act, Navotas and Malabon was again merged.

ACTIVE TIDAL FLATS

The landform of Navotas primarily consists of active tidal flats which can also be found in the nearby city of Malabon and municipalities of Paombong and Hagonoy. Its common land uses are fishponds, saltponds, urban areas and sometimes rainfed paddy rice. The soils are mainly composed of tidal mudflats with mucky and peaty materials ad alluvial sediments. The active tidal flat area is submerged, flushed with seawater at high and low tides, and is poorly drained and subject to seasonal flooding.

HYDROLOGY AND DRAINAGE RIVER SYSTEM

Navotas is traversed by the Navotas-Malabon River, which is part of the Navotas-Malabon-Tullan (NMT) river system that is 23 km long. The Navotas portion of the Navotas-Malabon River is referred as Navotas River which is approximately 6.6 km long. The NMT river system goes through Caloocan City and Valenzuela then down to Malabon and Navotas and drains to the Manila Bay. Other water bodies that passed through Navotas are: Tangos River, Tanza River and Sawang Creek. The river trifurcates from Malabon-Tullahan River flows both north and south, and is running parallel the coastline. The northern portion is the Navotas River while the southern part is the Navotas-Marala River, which flows depending on the tidal flow. 18 NAVOTAS CITY: MACRO SITE ANALYSIS

DRAINAGE AREA

The drainage area of Navotas encompasses about 561 has. and is subdivided into four (4) sub-areas by Navotas River, Tanza River, and Muzon-Dampalit River. (The western section of Navotas sub-area flows into Manila while the eastern side flows into the Navotas River. The sub-area bounded by Navotas, Muzon-Dampalit and Malabon Rivers flows from south to north. For Tanza sub-area, water flows to Navotas and Tanza Rivers and in sub-area east of Muzon-Damapalit River, water flows directly to it.)

COASTAL /BAY RESOURCES

The rivers and creeks that crisscrossed Navotas comprise its surface water resources. Most notable of these are: the NavotasMalabon River which is part of the Navotas-MalabonTullahan-Tinajeros river system, the Sawang Creek and other smaller water bodies.

The shoreline of Navotas fronting Manila Bay has a total length of 12.5 kilometers. Twelve (12) of its barangays are situated along the coastline of Manila Bay. The City’s municipal waters, on the other hand, have an approximate area of 9,300 hectares. Manila Bay is a shallow body of water with relatively flat bottom contour. It was known for the pelagic and demersal fish populations

that once abound in the area. It is also home to softbottom communities, in particular the windowpane oysters as well other species of shellfish and other invertebrates. Data showed that the following fishes can still be found along the coastal areas of Navotas: tunsoy, asohos, bicao, malakapas, sapsap and salinas as well as some shrimps (hipon and alamang)

Groundwater refers to water being held in the aquifer. Water that infiltrates the soil trickles slowly downwards or percolates through the pores and cracks in soil and rocks. The rock strata or layer capable of holding water is known as the aquifer. Groundwater availability is largely influenced by the geology, topography and soil type of an area. The northernmost portion is comprised mostly of fishponds. However, segments of this fishpond area slowly is being converted for other uses specifically, residential and solidwaste disposal facility.


AIR AND WATER QUALITY

AIR QUALITY

WATER QUALITY

Generally, the ambient air quality in Metro Manila is poor, including in Navotas City. The air pollution is brought by anthropogenic sources due to intensive urbanization and industrialization. Navotas exhibits poor ambient air due to air pollution. Air pollution in Navotas largely comes from mobile, stationary and area sources.

The water of NavotasMalabon River is considered as one of the most polluted ones. The polluted situation of the Navotas-Malabon River can be attributed to the various types of solid and liquid wastes from industrial firms located along its banks.

Accordingly, the waste generated from domestic usage, including those from commercial establishments and industrial factories, are discharged into septic tanks, drainage canal or directly to the rivers. Partly treated domestic sewage from general public are discharged into the river and adds to the worsening condition of the said water body. `

Visual apperance of the river itself would reveal its murky color and noticeable odor emanating from the water including the solid waste and to some extent human excreta which finds its way to the river.

NATURAL HAZARDS AND DISASTER-PRONE AREAS 33


FLOOD

Navotas is one of the flood prone areas in Metro Manila due mainly to perennial tidal inundations. The flooding hazard has gradually worsened due to continuous excessive siltation in the river mouth of this city. The flooding hazard is exacerbated further by the reclamation of large tracts of low lying fishponds which have previously provided natural storage for river flows during high tides. In addition, the proximity of Navotas to Manila Bay has also aggravated flooding.

LEGEND LOW FLOOD SUSCEPTIBILITY MILD FLOOD SUSCEPTIBILITY HIGH FLOOD SUSCEPTIBLITY VERY HIGH FLOOD SUSCEPTIBILITY

34 NAVOTAS CITY: MACRO SITE ANALYSIS


LIQUEFACTION

Navotas has been assessed as being susceptible to liquefaction due to its location and geologic structure. Liquefaction is the process by which sediment that is very wet starts to behave like a liquid. It occurs because of the increased pore pressure and reduced effective stress between solid particles generated by the presence of liquid. Liquefaction is often caused by severe shaking, especially that associated with earthquakes.

The city hall, built in 2003, is a five-storey building with roof deck and heliport, and is said to be the highest building in the city. Near the city hall, there are the police station, fire station, sports complex, post office, and others. Located on one of the major road (M. Naval Street), the area is bustling with people and is near to commercial establishments that are relatively new (Jollibee, McDonald’s, Puregold, etc.). Not far from the city hall is the hospital, Navotas City Hospital, which was built in 2014. For every barangay of the city, there is one barangay hall. Each of the barangay hall is mostly two-storey with its office space usually located at the second floor, while some are on the ground floor. Usually on the ground floor, there is the health center and day care center. Each barangay hall looks unique, there are some that are simple looking, but what identifies them are the Philippines flag and signage with their specific barangay written on it. 52 NAVOTAS CITY: MACRO SITE ANALYSIS

There are many basketball courts found around the city. There is also the sports complex located near the city hall. Asides from sports, the people are also fond of dancing and bonding, thus there are such open spaces for them to use. There is the Navotas Citywalk and Amphitheater, located along C-4, that is one of the city’s famous landmark where the residents can enjoy clean and green environment in the middle of the busy roads intersecting the two districts of Navotas. It also serves as venue for the residents who wish to showcase their talents and skills and express their thoughts. Another open space is the Navotas Centennial Park that runs along the R-10 Bridge. For the children, there are also playgrounds in the city for them to play. There is one near the City Hall and another one along C-4. Having the commercial establishments such as Jollibee, McDonalds, and Puregold only popped out just few years back, there is still no malls in the city. The residents will have to go outside the city if they want to go to mall, and one of the nearest to the city is the Malabon City Square, located along C-4 in Malabon City.

HOUSING SITUATION

SOCIALIZED HOUSING

The average NavoteĂąo household is only 4.1 which is a small family size for a highly dense city.

Majority of the households live in small and makeshift housing. Commonly, these shanties are located near the waterways.

A socialized housing project was developed in the Barangay of Tanza and has given the relocatees new home.

The rise in population of Navotas is so apparent that there is a need for a socialized housing project. The Local Government of Navotas has allocated 8.4 hectares in Barangay Tanza solely for the purpose of socialized housing. The general objective of the project is to convert the area, currently a fishpond with earth dikes, into a socialized housing settlement for some of the indigent and homeless families of the city through containment and reclamation. The socialized housing settlement will have all the basic utilities and other components to support human habitation.

06 CITY ECONOMY 61


LABOR AND EMPLOYMENT LABOR FORCE

Defined as the people who are willing and able to work. The size of the labor force is used to determine the unemployment rate.

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE

LABOR PARTICIPATION RATE

Percentage of the unemployed in the labor force

The labor force as the percentage of the total population over the minimum working age

Labor and employment plays a big role in the analysis of the city’s economy. It is the key factor that determines how jobs are created for the productive age population (ages 15 to 64). Labor and employment determine how the city is able to provide opportunities for its constituents. It shapes the demographic and affects the culture of the place. The three terms above are commonly used in the computation of the statistics for the labor force and employment scenario. The Labor Force includes both employed and unemployed, but not bounded by age restrictions. The Labor Participation Rate is the formula that takes into consideration the minimum working age. Statistics reveal that both have increasing trends, which is gives the city both more workers leaving it to the city to be able to provide to this demand. 62 NAVOTAS CITY: MACRO SITE ANALYSIS


EMPLOYMENT DATA Following the trends of Employment Data in the past decade, it can be seen that the labor population as well as labor for population is increasing. Despite this, data also reveals that along with the increase of workforce is the increase of unemployment rate, and decreasing employment rate.

Interviews revealed that both residents and local government officials believe that livelihood is an current issue that needs to be addressed by providing opportunities for the residents, especially the out-ofschool-youth. The local government has also been launching several Livelihood Caravans to assist the residents and boost up the employment rate once again.

63


LABOR POPULATION Population can be divided into three categories with regards to labor and employment. The first group is called the Child Youth Population which range from newly born children to 14-year-olds. In this category, the males exceed the females. The second group is called the Productive Population, better known as the Working Age group which range from 15 to 64 years old. This is the population where the labor participation rate is based on. In this category, the males exceed the females in ratio as well. The last group is called the Dependent

64 NAVOTAS CITY: MACRO SITE ANALYSIS

Population which range from 65 years old and above. It is in this category that the females exceed the males in ratio. Navotas has a productive population of 164, 118 as per 2015, which is 65.8% of the total population. The city’s Child Youth Population is at 75, 962 which is 30.5% of the population. Lastly, Navotas has a Dependent Population of 9, 383 which is only 3.8% of the population.


EMPLOYMENT PATTERNS GAINFUL WORKERS 15 AND OVER BY MAJOR OCCUPATION GROUP

It can be observed from the data that Navotas offers various job opportunities. Despite Navotas being known for it’s large fishport, the statistics reveal that fishing is only the sixth on the occupations undertaken by its residents. Of the major occupation groups, Service and Sales workers are the highest (23.1%) only followed by those with Elementary Occupations—which consist of tasks that are simple and routine and require the use of physical work and/or hand-held tools.

Of the total gainful workers (15 years old and above), statistics have also revealed that there are more male workers (64.3% of total) than female workers (35.7% of the total).

65


ECONOMIC SECTORS PRIMARY SECTOR

SECONDARY SECTOR

The fishing industry serves as the predominant economic sector and the city’s main source of livelihood for the 14 coastal barangays of Navotas City. In 2010, Navotas City registered 5% to 10% economic growth rate. Ten percent (10%) of this came from the high-income group, 20% from the average income group, and 70% from the low-income group. Based on the assessment of the three (3) major economic sectors of Navotas City, it can be inferred that the local economy of the city is dominated by commerce and trade followed by the services sector. Thus, the economic growth of Navotas City can be propelled not only by he City’s envisioned role of becoming a regional fishing industry hub but also in promoting, developing, and managing the tertiary sector particularly commerce and trade. This will address the continuous growth in employment as well as in addressing the poverty condition of Navotas City. 66 NAVOTAS CITY: MACRO SITE ANALYSIS

TERTIARY SECTOR


PRIMARY SECTOR The primary sector covers the economic activities that involves direct utilization of natural resources like agriculture (crop production, poultry and livestock raising), fishery and forestry. It also includes activities such as hunting, trapping, and game propagation. Navotas City, given its huge municipal water, is primarily engaged in fisheries production. On the other hand, backyard crop production and livestock raising are considered secondary agricultural activities and are intended for home consumption only due to lack of space. SUPPORT FACILITIES FOR FISH PRODUCTION Based on the 2011 SEP, Navotas City has 7,538 marginal fisherfolks and among the 12 barangays involved in fishery production, Barangays Tangos, Tanza and San Jose had the most number of fishing boats. Barangay Tangos has more than half (60%) of the fishing boats in the city which is equivalent to 1,041 units. Of this, 1,000 are motorboats and the rest (41) are “de-sagwan�.

FISH PRODUCTION INITIATIVES

The strengthening of the Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Management Councils (FARMCs) is done through regular meetings and orientation of all Bantay Dagat personnel. Mayor John Rey Tiangco had also requested the Barangay Captains to designate Bantay Dagat personnel in their respective barangay to ensure safety of Manila Bay to dynamite fishing. The reactivation of FARMC at barangay level, BFARMC, facilitated the activeThe participation reactivation ofof fisherfolks FARMC atinbarangay the management level, BFARMC, and conservation facilitated the of marineparticipation active and aquatic of resources fisherfolks as well in the asmanagement the implementation and conservation of all fishery of marine laws, rules andand aquatic regulations resources bothasatwell localas and thenational implementation levels. of all fishery laws, rules and regulations both at local and national levels. 67


SECONDARY SECTOR The secondary sector encompasses economic activities that involves the processing of materials from the primary sector. This include: a) mining and quarrying of metallic and non-metallic products; b) manufacturing of all types of products; c) generation of electric power, production of gas and steam, and development of waterworks system; and d) construction.

BUSINESS ESTABLISHMENTS RELATED TO FISHING The establishments relevant to the fishing industry represent a meager 8.0% (153) of the total number of establishments of Navotas City. Food manufacturing industries include those small-scale business establishments that venture into the processing of fish sauce, dried smoked fish, fishmeal and bagoong. Shipyards are the primary economic contributors of the past but the numbers declined coupled with the deterioration of the condition of a number of shipyards causing water, air, and noise pollution. These industries cover shipbuilding, repair and maintenance. SERVICES 42%

POVERTY SCENARIO

POVERTY INCIDENCE Based on 2003 city and municipal level small area poverty estimation of NSCB, Navotas City has a poverty incidence of 7.41%. This proportion is relatively higher than the 2.60% poverty level of CAMANAVA Area and 5.0% for the NCR. In the same year, Navotas City has the highest poverty incidence among the cities clustered under the 3rd District of Manila (CAMANAVA) to include Caloocan City (5.2%), Malabon City (5.1%) and Valenzuela City (4.4%). In 2005, the magnitude of poverty of Navotas City surged to 18.13%. This level had exceeded the poverty level of NCR of 7.71% by 11.02 %.

POVERTY INCIDENCE (NAVOTAS CITY)

71


POVERTY GAP AND SEVERITY Poverty gap, defined by NSCB in 1997 Philippine Poverty Statistics, refers to the total income shortfall (expressed in proportion to the poverty line) of families with income below the poverty threshold, divided by the total number of the families. From 2003 to 2005, the income gap in Navotas City has widened by 2.86% from 1.37% in 2003 to 4.23% in 2005 and had exceeded that of NCR. This mean that the income of the families living in Navotas City should be increased by 2.86% of the poverty threshold or about Php2,800.00 to fully eradicate poverty or make the poverty incidence zero.

Poverty severity determines the level of inequality among the poor and gauges how poor the poor are. Between 2003 and 2005, poverty becomes less severe from 3.90% in 2003 to 1.42% in 2005 despite the fact that the magnitude of poverty went up during the same periods.

POVERTY AND FOOD THRESHOLD POVERTY THRESHOLD (CAMANAVA) Poverty Threshold. Poverty threshold or poverty line refers to the cost of basic food and non-food requirements. The latter includes the non-food expenditure items of the Total Basic Expenditures. It is also viewed “as the minimum income required to meet the food requirements and other non-food basic needs”. (1997 Philippine Poverty Statistics, NSCB)

FOOD THRESHOLD (CAMANAVA) Food Threshold. Food threshold refers to the cost of the food required to satisfy nutritional requirements for economically necessary and socially desirable physical activities. It is based on 100% adequacy for the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) for protein and energy.

URBAN PATTERNS When you try to observe the architectural character of Navotas, the settlements would seem amorphous or very organic. The houses and the zoning of the buildings even seem unplanned. However, once you look at the city in a macro scale, say, look at how the streets and the barangays connect, observe how the buildings sizes differ from each other; you would realize that the urban patterns of the city are diverse and interesting to study. In order to identity and analyze the urban patterns of the City of Navotas, it can be broken down into the following elements: street patterns, plot pattern, and the building structures.

STREET PATTERNS

The streets of the city will be evaluated according to its size, form, and context. 96 NAVOTAS CITY: MACRO SITE ANALYSIS

PLOT PATTERNS

BUILDING STRUCTURES

The plot patterns will be identified throught the relationship of the mass and void.

In connection with the plot patterns, the density and the urban cores will be identified.


97


STREET PATTERNS The street patterns of a place influences the other urban elements and socio-economic aspects of a city. Navotas City, given its geographical characterstics has very diverse and interesting street patterns. The diagrams on the right are the plotted road networks of the city which show the difference between the urban patterns of the 1st District and 2nd District of Navotas City.

1ST

DISTRICT

98 NAVOTAS CITY: MACRO SITE ANALYSIS

In the 1st District, it can be observed that the configuration of the streets is dominantly formal. Moreover, most of the major thoroughfares of the city pass through this district namely C-4 Road, R-10 Road, North Bay Boulevard, Lapu-Lapu Avenue, and C-3 Road.

On the other hand, the 2nd District’s street patterns are more organic and linear. Two two-lane roads that traverse the length of the island, M. Naval Street and Gov. A. Pascual Street, serve as primary roads to the secondary narrow alleys. These street patterns are integral to the plot patterns and settlement patterns of the city.

PLOT AND BUILDING PATTERNS

With the different street patterns of the city of Navotas, various plot patterns and building patterns are identified. These plot and building patterns are not very evident on ground but when you look at the city from an aerial perspective, you will notice the differences of the plot sizes, the density of the buildings, the distribution of buildings, the sizes of the structures, and the relationship of the buildings with one another. The diagrams on the following pages will show the different plot and building patterns in the city of Navotas. These figure-ground diagrams are 25 hectares plots of the city.

100 NAVOTAS CITY: MACRO SITE ANALYSIS


Formal plot configurations and medium density of buildings are seen in the central area of Barangay Tanza.

The difference in density of the industrial and residential areas are evident in the Barangay Daanghari.

The density of the settlements become highly dense in the areas near the river like the informal settlements along Tangos River.

Despite the high density of the builings, San Roque and Daanghari have more formal plot configurations as compared to Tangos.

Being the most dense barangay in the city, Barangay Tangos has very dense and informal plot patterns and building patterns.

The density of the houses in Barangay San Rafael Village is low and the plots are more formal and bigger compared to the other barangays.

This core is the center of the city, geographically and politically.

The major fishing industry centers are located here, including the Navotas Fish Port.


NORTHERN FISHPOND AREAS

From the street, plot, and building patterns, the city can be broken down into three cores. These are the Northern Fishpond Areas, the Middle Residential Enclaves, and the Southern Industrial Cores. In line with that, the said urban cores can be compared to the three major land uses of the city; the protected fishponds area, the residential area, and the industrial area.

COASTAL SETTLEMENTS As a coastal city, the river systems and the Manila Bay have been integral not only to the industries in the city but also to the urban character of the city. From the diagrams on the left, it can be observed that there are two ways on how the people use the coastal areas of the city; one as an industrial zone and the other as an informal residential area. The shoreline of the Manila Bay is occupied by several informal settling communities. It is also used as a docking area for the fishing boats of the fishermen of the communities. On the other hand, the Navotas Riverbank is commonly occupied by large shipyards.

GENERAL AGENDA

116 NAVOTAS CITY: MACRO SITE ANALYSIS


LIVEHOOD

INDUSTRIES

One of the major issues that the people have raised is the lack of job opportunities for the locals. Despite the several industries in the city, they need more facilities that can create jobs and livelihood.

Being the “Fishing Capital� of the Philippines, Navotas City has been known for its various fishing industries. However, the people need a well-designed facility for the manufacturing of their products.

EDUCATION

REHABILITATION

Even though the city has a lot of schools and colleges, it still lacks with the educational support facilities that can either help the student with their studies or encourage the out-of-school you to go back to school.

The city has already facilitated a rehabilitation program for the drug users in the city since October of 2016. However, the city does not have its own facilities that can accommodate to the needs of the rehabilitation program.

TRANSPORTATION

CONNECTIVITY

With the various transportation modes in the city, the mobility of people is still not as efficient as possible because of the existing conditions of its roads. Moreover, the river can be utilized as a thoroughfare.

The lack of open and public spaces for the people is problematic in a city that is continuously growing and urbanizing. The connecitivity of the people and the building can be enforced with the use of architecture. 117
