Proclamation 247, issued by Malacañang in September 2002, declared the month of September of every year as Development Policy Research Month (DPRM). The proclamation highlights the critical role of policy research in the socioeconomic advancement of the Philippines and the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) as the lead coordinator and convenor of the yearly celebration.
The DPRM underscores the need to promote, enhance, instill, and draw awareness and appreciation of the importance and necessity of policy research in development planning and policymaking. It also aims to improve the public's awareness and understanding of significant socioeconomic issues.
To achieve these goals, the PIDS--with the support of its partners--organize several events, including a kick-off forum or press conference, the Annual Public Policy Conference (APPC), and the Mindanao Policy Research Forum (MPRF). The APPC serves as the highlight of the DPRM. It brings together local and international experts in an evidence-based discussion of the theme, with representatives from the government, private sector, academe, civil society, and international organizations.
This year's DPRM celebration focuses on the theme, "Going Green and Digital for a More Sustainable, Inclusive, and Prosperous Future for All", or in Filipino, "Maging Makakalikasan at Digital para sa Higit na Matatag, Ingklusibo, at Masaganang Kinabukasan para sa Lahat". The theme highlights the twin transition--digital and green transformation--as a way forward for the Philippines to attain a more sustainable, inclusive, and prosperous future, build back better after the COVID-19 pandemic, and achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
