The University of Southeastern Philippines (USeP) joins the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) and the entire nation in celebrating the 19th Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) this September pursuant to Proclamation No. 247 series of 2002.
The DPRM highlights the importance of policy research in crafting evidence-based plans, policies, and programs using data in planning and policymaking by the country’s leaders and decision-makers. It also aims to raise the public’s awareness of socioeconomic issues.
Guided with the theme “Reset and Rebuild for a Better Philippines in the Post-Pandemic World”, this year’s DPRM aims to emphasize that to be able to rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic and create a better Philippines, we need to reset our paradigms and practices by balancing the interests of people, profit, and planet or by placing equal importance on economic, social, and environmental well-being and sustainability.
Watch out for the webinars and other activities to be held in September as part of the DPRM celebration.
