New Clark City is green and disaster-resilient
More than half of this city is green and made of wide, open spaces, That would be 60% or 6,000 hectares out of the 9,450 hectare expanse of New Clark City. 
This much will be left as green or open spaces for upland farming and forest reserves.  Large areas of the city will be walkable and efficient transportation systems are being planned so there will be less need for cars and, therefore, less pollution. Roads will have generous pedestrian sidewalks, bike lanes, and automated people mover at full build-out.

Public utilities will use greener energy sources, such as solar energy, liquefied natural gas, and waste-to-energy facilities. Buildings are also being designed to consume less energy. The target is to have 30% of New Clark City's power come from renewable energy by 2030.

The city engineers and planners are preserving the natural landscape of New Clark City, retaining its river, avoiding cutting down trees, building around BCDA worked with the University of the Philippines Training Center for Applied Geodesy and Photogrammetry (UP-TCAGP) to obtain an aerial map for New Clark City to ensure that the masterplan is aligned with the natural contours and usage of the land.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is likewise conducting a Biodiversity Assessment and Hydrology Study to ensure the conservation of flora and fauna and the sustainability of water in New Clark City. As advised by the ADB, for example, BCDA is developing the 1.4-kilometer River Park Corridor that follows the natural flow of the Cutcut River.

If a major disaster happens in the capital where all of the government agencies operate, it will cripple the whole nation. The NGAC is the government’s response to the disaster threat and its commitment to serve the people under all circumstances.

New Clark City is being developed by BCDA as the Philippines’ first and largest resilient city. It is a master-planned community made of smart buildings, green spaces, and intelligent and environment-friendly transport systems. It is the representation of a modern Filipino city where residents can live and work in the midst of a better climate and a secure environment.

LAHAR FLOW
NGAC is 35 kilometers away from Mount Pinatubo, but the location was not reached by the lahar flow during the last eruption in 1991 because of its high elevation.  Despite its resilient location, NGAC facilities are built to withstands 700-millimeter thick ashfall.
