Research and publishing organisation. WWW site has lists of projects (including the Micro Impacts of Macroeconomic Adjustment Policies (MIMAP) project) and publications. Includes selected full text articles from its Development Research News and its Journal of Philippine Development.

WWW site also provides access to their Philippine Economic Information Service, a set of statistical indicators on Philippines economic performance (including data on: production and employment; national accounts; prices and wages; government finance; monetary sector; balance of payments) and social indicators (including poverty figures; labour and employment; population; survey of key enterprises in manufacturing).


It offers similar data (with less detail) for other countries (most Asian and European, some Latin American. The site likewise provides a GIS-based Philippine socioeconomic profile and an agriculture database. It also features the Institute's initiatives on creating a Socioeconomic Research Portal for the Philippines, which provides a compendium of research studies undertaken by various academic and research institutions in the country and, the Electronic Resource Base for Legislators, highlighting major economic bills from the Philippines' House of Representatives.

This paper aims to showcase the experience of the Magat (Philippines) watershed in the implementation of the watershed management approach. Magat watershed was declared as a forest-reservation area through Proclamation No. 573 on June 26, 1969 because of its great importance to human survival and environmental balance in the region. The Magat case demonstrates the important role that ‘champions’ like the local government unit (LGU) could play in managing the country’s watersheds.

Land redistribution or the transfer of ownership rights to the tiller has been the focal point of the land reform program in the Philippines. This transfer was envisioned to result in a significant shift in income and productivity in the agrarian sector. While some equalisation of incomes may have indeed occurred, the full benefits of this asset transfer, however, have not been realised.

This study examines benefits of rent control law in Metro Manila. The results show that rent control benefits are conditional to occupying a rent-controlled unit and on tenure. The benefits of rent control are found positive. Many poor and low-income households are benefited but the distributional effects are minimal since non-poor families have equal access to rent-controlled units. Evidence of losses or income transfers from landlords to tenants is not substantiated. The most probable income transfers are those from short-stayers to long-stayers.

This paper constructs a framework for and reviews studies on property rights reforms in the agricultural and natural resources sector. In the case of agrarian reform, several hypotheses are posited: that agrarian reform will increase the rate of capital accumulation of beneficiaries and improve tenurial security, but may have negative impacts on land access, investments of landowners, and efficiency of land use. For the natural resources sector, the implications of open access and promotion of property rights are surveyed for the Philippine case.

The valuation of resources found in the watershed area is important in assessing the impacts of changes in the watershed. While the change will have positive impacts which are short-term in nature, there are long-term environmental damages associated with economic benefits.

This paper gives a rational judgment on the soundness of such changes through cost and benefit analysis. The watershed approach is utilized to capture the effects that are relevant in the analysis.
