PHILIPPINES

The Philippines are a state with a demographic growth among the highest in all of south-east Asia. Two thirds of the inhabitants live on the island of Luzon in the metropolitan area of the capital Manila, which has more than 11 million inhabitants. Poverty is still a reality lived by a large part of the population, particularly in this metropolitan area, characterised by the presence of many slums.
