Externally-Funded Research

The IPC conducts research on critical development concerns, responding to the knowledge and field-level needs of various development actors such as national government agencies, local government units, nongovernment organizations, and international agencies. Since 1960, the IPC has conducted over three hundred contracted studies on a variety of research topics on Philippine cultures and societies, disadvantaged groups in the country, and other development concerns. Some topics of past and current externally-funded IPC research projects include: agriculture, agrarian reform and rural development, irrigation, forest management, watershed management, fisheries management, family planning, urban poverty and urban informal settlements, slum upgrading and low-cost social housing, community health, cultural heritage, indigenous peoples and Bangsamoro people, women and gender, and children and youth, among others. The IPC has also been at the forefront of pioneering and developing research methodologies such as survey research, process documentation research, child-friendly research, feminist research, qualitative life story interviewing, participatory poverty assessments which foreground the "voices of the poor," research with indigenous peoples, and electronic tablet-based data collection, among others.
