The Sulung Pampanga Resettlement Project answers the need to settle Mount Pinatubo eruption victims numbering up to 10,412 families as of January 1997. In a joint-venture agreement with Clark Development Corporation (CDC) and the Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA), Sulung Pampanga Foundation, Inc. aims to resettle 4,000 families from Pampanga in a site within the Clark Special Economic Zone.
A viable implementation plan is proposed by the Foundation. Specific aspects of the resettlement considers the site, the target beneficiaries and other socio-economic factors as influences to sustainability of the community's development.
The initial term plan is to develop an area of 7 hectares, out of 100 hectares intended for resettlement. Approximately 260 families with an integrated evacuation program in case of calamities constitute the pilot community. The remaining 93 hectares is considered as venue for reforestation as well as other agri-based alternative sources of livelihood.
The long-term plan is to identify alternative sites with an area ranging from 6 to 10 hectares for resettlement in areas not anymore threatened by lahar flows.
