Description

The Socio-Economics Research Division (SERD) is responsible for planning, coordinating, monitoring, and evaluating the sociological and economic researches of the National Agriculture, Aquatic and Resources R&D Network (NAARRDN). It also formulates and defines the R&D directions in the areas of Applied Rural Sociology and Agriculture and Resource Economics.

While the other PCAARRD technical divisions deal directly with physical commodities (e.g., rice, poultry, farm resources, forestry), SERD is concerned with the people who produce, process, distribute, and consume these commodities, and with policies and programs affecting such activities.

Macro in nature, SERD's socio-economic research program complements the various commodity programs in crops, livestock, forestry and environment, and agricultural resource management, and provides a macro-micro mix of information needed for informed decision-making both at the local and national levels.

SERD operates through its five units: the R&D Evaluation and Monitoring Unit (RDEMU), the  Policy Analysis and Information Management Unit (PAIMU), the Socio-Economic Evaluation and Impact Assessment Unit (SEEIAU), the Agri-Aqua Business Unit (AABU), and the Gender and Development and Special Projects Unit (GADSPU).

Special projects are also implemented by these units. These include the following:

  • Rapid Market Appraisal for Underutilized Fruits (Guava, Soursop, Sugar Apple, and Tamarind) in the Philippines (RMA Fruits)
  • Strengthening of the Industry Strategic Science and Technology Plan Information System (ISP-IS) for Improved R&D Management
  • Development and Institutionalization of a Results-Based Monitoring and Evaluation System for PCAARRD-Supported Programs and Projects (RBME Project)
  • Midterm Review and Evaluation of the PCAARRD Corporate Plan 2017-2022 Implementation (CorPlan Review)
  • Enhancement of Gender and Development Integration Towards A More Inclusive R&D in AANR (GAD Project)
  • Establishment and Institutionalization of PCAARRD Agri-Aqua Business Hub
  • Enhancing PCAARRD’s Role in Policy Analysis and Advocacy in AANR
  • Impact Assessment of the Technology Innovation for Commercialization (TECHNICOM) Program (IA TECHNICOM)
  • Development and Institutionalization of DOST Foresight Framework and Protocol
