Think tank

PIDS engages in long-term, policy-oriented research. PIDS was established in response to a critical and growing need for systematic and comprehensive studies that can guide and support decision-making in the government. It is envisioned to be a development policy think tank for planners and policy and decision-makers, specifically those in the Cabinet, the Legislature, and the network of agencies that make up the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), the country's development planning office. PIDS's activities are aimed at expanding research on social and economic development in order to assist policymakers and leaders in their decision-making, serving as a common link between the government and existing research institutions, and establishing a repository for economic research information and other related activities.
