PIDS promotes dev’t policy search month
by Carlito C. Dar / PIA

This month, the country is celebrating Development Policy Research Month (DPRM), which aims to increase awareness and appreciation of the importance of research in crafting development programs and policies.

Philippine Institute of Development Studies (PIDS) Director for Research Information Sheila Siar said the DPRM is an annual celebration mandated by Presidential Proclamation 247 s. 2002, to remind the country’s policymakers and the public on the importance of bringing in research-based evidence and outputs in decision-making processes.

For this year,  the DPRM celebration adopts the theme, “Addressing the job challenge toward inclusive growth,” to give focus on looking into ways of addressing unemployment and underemployment which remains a labor sector concern despite the good economic performance and investment-grades the country has been achieving.

In a forum last Tuesday, PIDS senior research fellow Aniceto Orbeta Jr., presented their research on labor policy analysis for jobs expansion and development. 

The study aims to clarify job issues, analyze the impact of legal minimum wage to the welfare of common people and the disadvantage and find ways to make labor regulations and practices work for the poor, jobless and disadvantaged members of society.

Other panelists were regional or provincial directors of the Department of Trade and Industry Technical Education and Skills Development, Commission on Higher Education and Department of Labor and Employment.

The PIDS was created on September 1977.

It was established to respond to the critical and growing need for research for planning and policy formulation.
