Quezon City, Philippines
Quezon City is the largest metropolitan city in the Capital center of the Philippines and is also the most populated of all the Chartered Cities of the Philippines, with 2,679,450 residents as counted by the last Census in 2007. It occupies 160 square kilometers of the Capital center metropolis, formally called the National Capital Region, equating to over one-fourth of the metro land area and nearly the same ratio of the metro population of 11.5 million. About one-half of its city population is under 24 years of age, making it a very young urban center.
It is also considered the country’s center for learning with about 65 universities and colleges located within its urban city limits that service its youthful population, with the renowned University of the Philippines leading the list along with the venerable Jesuit institution of Ateneo de Manila University, and many other developmental schools and training centers. Many graduates of these learning institutions have secured foreign employments and provide assistance to their local families, making the city a great contributor to the national economy.
Quezon City is divided into 142 barangays. The Barangays in Quezon City are divided into four districts. Each district is represented by a congressman. Above is a list of Barangays in Quezon City and each barangay is designated with (D1, D2, D3, D4). D1 is for District one. D2 is for District two. D3 is for District three. D4 is for District four.
Geography of Quezon City, Philippines
Quezon City is centrall y located in the Philippines' biggest northern island of Luzon, and its geographical coordinates are 14° 38' 38" North, 121° 2' 15" East, within the South East region of the Asia continent.
Quezon City is one of the 18 chartered cities and municipalities that make up the National Capital Region (NCR), or more commonly known as Metro Manila. It straddles the northern extension of the Guadalupe plateau. This strategic location provides stable ground foundation, adequate surface drainage, deep water table, and ample ground water supply. It is an area of moderate slopes and the most common soil type is the hard loam, more popularly known as the adobe, which was heavily used in construction in the past.
In terms of land area, Quezon City is the second biggest city in the country next to Davao City. It's weather condition is generally fair, with the highest amount of rainfall occuring during the months of May to November of every year and usually dry, hot and humid the rest of the times.
One of the city's most important geographical features is the Novalitches reservoir with its earthen La Mesa Dam, located in the northern barangay of Novaliches. It was first erected in 1929 and then further raised in 1959 to a maximum storage capacity of 50.5 million cubic meters. Overflow level of the dam is at an elevation of 80.15 meters. The watershed has an area of 27 square kilometers, which receives an average annual rainfall of 2,000 millimeters. It is an integral part of the Angat-Ipo-La Mesa Dam Raw Water System that is the major source of water for the entire NCR of over 11 million people.
History of Quezon City, Philippines
On September 2, 1939, Assemblyman Ramon P. Mitra of the 2nd District of Mountain Province stood before the National Assembly with a bill proposing the creation of a capital city in the country. The bill could have been approved easily, but Mitra wanted it named Balintawak or Andres Bonifacio City for historical reasons. Two assemblymen from Pangasinan, Narciso Ramos, the father of former President Fidel V. Ramos, and Eugenio Perez teamed up to delay the passage of the bill so that a more appropriate name could be selected. When the matter was brought to Malacañang, President Manuel L. Quezon called a group for reaction. Quezon preferred to name the city Harrison City after the former American Governor-General of the Philippines.
However, Don Alejandro Roces, Sr., the person closest to President Quezon said, “Let’s call it Quezon City.”
Quezon reacted by saying, “Why can’t you people wait until I’m dead before you name anything after me?” But the decision was unanimous, for which Quezon smiled. And so on the afternoon of September 28, 1939, the National Assembly approved Bill No.1206 creating Quezon City.
On October 12, 1939, President Quezon signed Commonwealth Act No. 502 now known as the Charter of Quezon City and he himself immediately assumed the position as mayor. After three weeks before the end of 1939, he appointed Tomas Morato, an engineer and a close friend to replace him, thus making him the first Mayor of Quezon City. The first appointees as Quezon City officials were: Pio Pedrosa as City Treasurer who later became Secretary of Finance; Jake Rosenthal as City Assessor; Emilio Abello as City Attorney who later became Executive Secretary; Vicente Fragrante as Vice Mayor and at the same time City Engineer; Dr. Eusebio Aguilar as City Health Officer and also as City Councilor together with Jose Paez and Alejandro Roces, Sr.; Atty. Damian Jimenez as Secretary of the City Council; and Sabino de Leon as Chief of Police. The first City Council of Quezon City was composed only of three people, namely, Dr. Eusebio Aguilar, Jose Paez, and Alejandro Roces, Sr. They continued as City Councilors until the outbreak of World War II when the Japanese invaded the Philippines in 1942.
Throughout the Japanese occupation, Quezon City was non-existent. However, the City became a district of the Greater Manila. One Dr. Florencio Cruz was named as District Chief and Atty. Oscar Castelo as Acting Mayor. Right after the war, Sabino De Leon who was the former Chief of Police of Quezon City before the war, was designated as Acting Mayor by Sergio Osmeña, Sr., then the President of the liberated Philippines.
On April 23, 1946, a national election was held for the first time after the war. Former President Quezon’s Secretary of Finance Manuel A. Roxas won over incumbent President Sergio Osmeña. Immediately after the elections, President Roxas announced his intention of restoring Quezon City as a regular chartered city. On the eve of Christmas, 1946, President Roxas appointed Engr. Ponciano A. Bernardo as City Mayor. This was probably because Bernardo was City Vice Mayor and City Engineer of Quezon City during the term of Mayor Tomas Morato from 1940 until the outbreak of the war in 1941. When Mayor Bernardo died at the age of 44, together with Mrs. Aurora Aragon Quezon, the wife of President Quezon, in that infamous ambush made by bandits at Bongabong, Nueva Ecija on April 28, 1949, Atty. Nicanor Roxas, who was then Assistant Executive Secretary of President Quirino, became City Mayor up to January 1950. Later on, Rizal Congressman Ignacio Santos-Diaz was appointed City Mayor until the end of the term of Quirino in 1953.
In 1954, the new President Ramon Magsaysay appointed Norberto S. Amoranto, a tax lawyer, as City Mayor. He was the first elected Mayor of Quezon City and was the longest serving chief executive of the City. However, due to poor health, Amoranto submitted his resignation to President Ferdinand Marcos after serving for 22 years. In his place, Adelina S. Rodriguez, wife of then Rizal Governor Isidro Rodriguez, was appointed new City Mayor. When Martial Law was lifted and President Marcos was ousted as President in 1986, the new President of the Philippines appointed Brigido R. Simon, Jr. as Officer-in- Charge of the City and was subsequently elected City Mayor in 1987. Simon held the city mayorship until former City Vice-Mayor Ismael A. Mathay, Jr. was elected Mayor in the 1992 elections. Feliciano Belmonte, Jr. who was a three-term congressman of the 4th District of Quezon City and who later on became Speaker of the House of Representatives, was elected City Mayor over movie actor Rudy Fernandez in the election held in May 2001. He is the incumbent City Mayor of Quezon City, after winning his second term over former Mayor Mathay in the 2004 elections.
Originally, Quezon City was carved out of the province of Rizal and affected the territories of the municipalities of Caloocan, San Juan, Marikina, Pasig, and Mandaluyong. Its original land area of 1,527 hectares of low-cost housing project in Kamuning District, which was then a part of the municipality of San Juan, was expanded into 7,335 hectares when the law creating it as a new city was enacted under Commonwealth Act 502 on October 12, 1939. Its land area was further expanded to its present size of 15,359 hectares with the passage of Republic Act No. 333 on July 17, 1948 and Republic Act No. 537 on June 1, 1950. These laws extended the City boundaries to include the eight barrios of Caloocan and the eight land estates from nearby southwest territories, making it the biggest local government in Metro Manila in terms of land area and consequently of population. By description, Quezon City is five times bigger than the City of Manila. (Written by former City Councilor Willy M. Gallarpe)
People of Quezon City, Philippines
Quezon City now has 2.68 million people, the biggest population among all cities in the National Capital Region and third biggest in the Philippines. The City’s growth alone, of over 505,000 people during a 7-year period, almost equals the entire population of Makati (510,383), and surpasses that of Marikina (424,610). 55 percent of these new residents are migrants.
Two barangays, Commonwealth with 172,834, and Batasan Hills with 148,621 people, have a population bigger than the City of San Juan (125,338) and the municipality of Pateros (61,940) in NCR. The other three most populous QC barangays are Payatas with 117,001; Holy Spirit with 106,038; and Pasong Tamo with 82,340. All these top five most populous barangays are in District 2, where more than half of the City’s people reside.
In every square kilometer, there are about 166 persons in Quezon City. It is not as congested as other urban areas as its more than 16,000-hectare expanse of land still has many portions that are open for development.
Median age remains to be at 24, meaning half of the population is less than 24 years old. The working age of 15-64 is more than 65% of the City’s population. This means the City has a rich human resource pool of 1,747,656 people. Persons aged 14 and below and 65 above are considered the dependent population. Elderly population is 124,922, with a lifespan registered to be higher in females than males.
In every 100 females, there are 96 males, the same gender ratio recorded for Quezon City in 2001. Women of reproductive age, i.e. from 15 to 49 years old, total 802,194. There is a slight growth of 23% in the number of women who are in the reproductive age in a span of seven-years.

Economy of Quezon City, Philippines
A competitive economy
The City government of Quezon City reports that its city is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the Philippines today. Recently, it joined the ranks of Hong Kong, Singapore and Taipei, as one of the top 10 Asian Cities of the Future. Quezon City was ranked number 7 among more than 200 Asian cities, based on a survey commissioned by the London Financial Times through AsiaBiz Strategy, an investment and trade promotion consultancy based in Singapore. Hong Kong, Singapore and Taipei were the top three.
Consistently figuring in the top 10, and practically outranking other Philippine cities except in one category, Quezon City was assessed No. 5 in the category, “Best Economic Potential.” It was third best in Asia, in terms of “Cost Effectiveness,” sixth best, in terms of “Best Human Resources,” and tenth best, in terms of “Quality of Life.”
Mayor Feliciano Belmonte’s forward-looking management style has been able to make the most of the City’s strategic assets – its large and generally young population, its central location at the heart of Metro Manila, as well as the realities of Quezon City being a location of choice for media operations, schools and training center and medical facilities.
Wide range of business establishments
Quezon City had 58,196 registered businesses in 2008, rising from 56,810 in 2007, and 56,753 in 2006. The annual average new business entrants total more than 11,000, with about 43 new establishments registered daily.
The completion of new malls such as SM’s The Block, Ayala Land’s TriNoma, and Waltermart plus the operationalization of the UP-Ayala Science and Technology Park, virtually an e-community at UP’s 38-hectare Commonwealth Avenue Property, has contributed to the high average of registrants in recent years.
The distribution of new registrants are:
- Contractor of goods and services, including leasing – 61.6%
- Retailers – 22.5%
- Wholesalers – 9.1%
- Eating places – 5.8%
- Manufacturers – 0.5%
- Amusement places – 0.2%
An emerging global outsourcing city
Within the City are located at least 14 Philippine Export Zone Authority-accredited special economic zones dedicated to information technology, which offer ready-to use facilities for IT based businesses, contributing to Quezon City’s growing IT character.
In a 2008 Tholons special report on global services, Quezon City ranked among the top 50 emerging global outsourcing cities. They conducted a location assessement based on scale and quality of workforce (including education), business catalyst, cost, infrastructure, risk profile, and quality of life. Within the six categories are 15 subcategories that differentiate cities, and to a large extent determine their individual capacities to fulfill particular services. Quezon City ranked number 21 global outsourcing city, the highest among all nine new entrants.
The City is home to more than 60 business process outsourcing companies and about 3,000 companies engaged in ICT-related businesses. Many companies, both local and international, are discovering that Quezon City is a cost-effective business location.
Internet cafes are a popular destination, and about 600,000 of them dot many parts of the City including many residential neighborhoods. The City has about 450 computer retailers and distributors. More than 3,000 micro entrepreneurs are engaged in ICT-related businesses.
The City has at least 43 destinations offering wireless fidelity (wifi) service technology. Among the most expansive are the 35-hectare Araneta Center in Cubao and Eastwood Cyberpark.
Rich human resource pool
With 2.68 million residents, Quezon City is the most populated city of the Philippines and has the third biggest population among the country’s local government units. While other cities and municipalities would consider a huge population as a burden and a drain on public services, the City government views its mostly young population both as a large and trainable human resource pool as well as a big, dynamic, consumer market.
About 52.26% of its population is less than 25 years old. The City produces nearly 15,000 college graduates every year from its 87 university level institutions. Easy access to skilled and trainable manpower has been attracting human resource-intensive businesses (such as information technology companies, service firms and health and wellness facilities) to establish and expand their operations in Quezon City.
Harnessing the poor as productive assets
Objective: Better living standards for all citizens, especially the poor. The City has a large and mainly poor population. An estimated 55% of the population are migrants, many of them from other provinces, who come to the city in search of the proverbial better life. Some of them end up as informal settlers, who find the vast, vacant lots of the city convenient places to set up shacks. In other words, they are part of the growing trend of "squatters" in the country, reflective of the weak economy.
The City's basic strategy is to try to assimilate the in-migrants, integrate them into a progressive city life, and help them become productive, contributing citizens.
Poverty alleviation is a core governance objective in the City government’s development thrusts, which they call the ABC of development, enunciated as:
- Alleviating Poverty
- Building up the City
- Competing on Efficiencies
The City's strategy views the livability of communities as the result of the enhanced capacity of citizens to improve their personal and family quality of life. Better health, shelter, educational and economic conditions encourage them to look out into their communities, and participate actively in resolving common environmental concerns, as well as give them the incentive to work together for neighborhood and community upliftment.
Primary and secondary education, even in public schools are geared toward readiness for information technology. Internet laboratories exist in all Quezon City public high schools. Electronic libraries are used in 33 public elementary and high schools. Two training schools exist for affordable centralized IT training – one was developed with the help of the South Korean government and is geared toward mastery of computer animation, while the other is focused on high school training on basic computer software.

Natural Resources of Quezon City, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.

Project NOAH adopts Indonesian technology for disaster mitigation
- Thursday, May 23, 2013
- (PNA), JBP/PR/EBP
MANILA, May 23 (PNA) -- The Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST) Project NOAH (Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards) is adopting the disaster mitigating technology called InaSAFE from Indonesia.
InaSAFE is an acronym for Indonesia Scenario Assessment for Emergency. It is an open source technology, which means it is free, readily accessed from the internet and may be modified by users. With this technology, data coming from weather scientists, local government units and the communities are gathered and consolidated to provide accurate information on future disaster events.
NOAH adopted Indonesia's InaSAFE as it has a lot in common with the Philippines, especially in topography and natural hazards.
This was disclosed during the multi-stakeholder assembly titled “Enhancing Community Resilience Through the Use of New Technology” conducted by Project NOAH recently held at the Oracle Hotel in Quezon City.
Abigail Baca, disaster and risk management officer of the World Bank East Asia and Pacific Region said that InaSAFE proved effective during the recent floods in Jakarta, Indonesia and it can be applied in the Philippines.
Dr. Alfredo Francisco Mahar Lagmay of Project NOAH disclosed that InaSAFE will be integrated into Project NOAH to supplement existing technologies used to mitigate, if not totally prevent, massive destruction caused by strong typhoons similar to Sendong in 2011 and Pablo in December 2012.
During his presentation, Lagmay said, “It is important to develop information tools that will help centralize risk information at the NOAH website and make them available to a wider community.”
Since its launch in July 2012 in Marikina City, Project NOAH has continuously upgraded and strengthened its capability through installation of various weather forecasting equipment in various disaster-prone areas in the country. Among these are the Hydromet water level sensors and Doppler radars used to measure amount of rainfall in a specific area.
To date, there are 525 Hydromet sensors installed in different river systems including those in Tullahan River, Marikina River and San Juan River in Metro Manila. Likewise, the Project NOAH team has put up billboards in Pampanga showing flood maps to inform residents of the high-risk areas in their communities.
Further, Dr. Enrico C. Paringit, project leader of NOAH’s DREAM LiDAR (Disaster Risk and Exposure Assessment for Mitigation-Light Detection and Ranging) said, “Since November 2012, we were able to do three-dimensional or 3D mapping of the Pampanga river basin, Agno River, Cagayan de Oro and Iligan. By the end of May this year, 3D mapping for Iloilo will be completed and next in line is the Panay river basin.”
