Where are we in making Mega Cebu possible in 2050?
The Metro Cebu Development and Coordinating Board (MCDCB) in partnership with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) hosted study missions and knowledge sharing of experiences on sustainable urban development to realize the Mega Cebu 2050 Vision.
The 5th year civil engineering students of the University of San Carlos (USC) and University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) and Mega Cebu have conducted brainstorming sessions to choose project studies that will address the infrastructure problems in local government units from Carcar City to Danao City.
With global warming, the importance of trees multiplies a hundredfold, especially in cities and urbanized areas. They offer protection from calamities and diseases.
Urban street trees, specifically, provides benefits not just to the environment but to the people around them simply by existing in the middle and side of the roads, in parks, and around pocket communities.
This is a glimpse of Mega Cebu‘s celebration of its third year anniversary last April 15, 2014. Mega Cebu was created on April 1, 2011 when 14 local government units, 13 national government agencies, and seven private sector and civil society organizations signed a Memorandum of Agreement. Since then, Mega Cebu has been making strides in the urban development of Metro Cebu.
