Emerging World Environment

A. Emerging World Environment
The theme of the Emerging World Environment (EWE) Program is “Sustainable and Equitable Growth in the 21st Century: Mobilizing Domestic Resources, Economic Competitiveness and Social Reform”.
In relation to this, the proposed list of studies are broken into the more traditional components, namely,

  • economic policies for the real sectors;
  • macroeconomic policy and responses to economic shocks; and
  • political-economy and other institutional aspects.

B. Emerging World Environment – Food Security Research
The Food Security Research aims to link food security with poverty- and income generation-related studies. It also notes that there is a need to put more bias to action-oriented research. Thus, the focus of their research is one of the following:

  • “Household Level” studies which seeks to track the impact of government policies/programs as they impinge on household food security;
  • “Implementing Food Security Programs at the Local Level” which seeks to evolve new mechanisms that will improve the local government units (LGUs) capability in implementing food security programs; and,
  • “Policy Analysis and Advocacy for Achieving Food Security” which will undertake policy analysis and advocacy on the following areas: 1) “Incentive System for Rural Industrialization” and 2) Incentive System for the Supply and Use of Technologies for Agricultural Modernization.
