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.

SERD operates through its three units: the R&D Evaluation and Monitoring Unit, the Socio-Economic Evaluation and Impact Assessment Unit, and the Policy Analysis and Information Management Unit.

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.
