Jun Palafox: Zero Corruption Under Pres. Duterte, 40% Under Pres. Aquino for Urban Planning


World-renowned urban and city planner Felino "Jun" Palafox Jr, the Principal Architect of Palafox and Associates revealed that under the administration of Pres. Rody Duterte there is zero corruption for the urban planning of Metro Davao and master plan for Clark while there's an alleged 40% corruption rate during the admin of former Pres. Aquino.



According to Jun Palafox, based on his experience under the administration of Pres. Rody Duterte, it is now possible to get government projects going without corruption.

The veteran urban planner said that he heard about 5 to 7%  corruption rate during the time of Pres. Marcos. "Under PNoy, its 40% on the average. Today there is good news. We won the urban planning design competition of Metro Davao at zero corruption."

Palafox noted that they won the urban planning design competition of Metro Davao at zero corruption. He also announced winning the competition for the master plan of Clark with zero corruption.

Aside from the anti-corruption drive of the Duterte administration, Architect Palafox said that the ASEAN proceeding was "an affirmation of what I have been advocating for the past 45 years... about connectivity and context for urban renewal and development."

The world-renowned urban planner who was responsible as one of the curator of the cities like Dubai and Abu Dhabi explained that "We can learn from the heads of state even in the areas of real estate and urban planning,” Palafox said. “The big mansions and those with high-density enclaves have higher carbon footprint if they are in the middle of the cities,” Palafox said.

Jun Palafox also noted that developers are allocating to themselves "prime urban land resources, preventing more families and employees to be closer to their place of work, encouraging more urban sprawl to encroach into the forests and into the farms."
