Catbalogan Sky City Mega Project
Sector(s): Adaptation / Resilience / Disaster risk reduction, Urban planning & design
80 percent of Catbalogan’s old city is at risk from landslides, storms and floods. It is also highly congested. To tackle these issues, Catbalogan is building a new city, called Sky City, on 440 hectares of land 120 meters above sea level. Sky City will be structured to facilitate four aspects: learning, working, playing and resting. It is designed to encourage walking and biking to reduce transport emissions. Power will come entirely from renewable sources (geothermal, wind, hydro and solar), and every household unit will incorporate a garden. Sky City will be a model of sustainability for the country and the world.
