Publication Detail
DRN 2016 Vol. XXXIV No. 3: Building Resilience--Key to Achieving Sustainable and Inclusive Growth

The third issue of the Development Research News (DRN) in 2016 drives home several insights gathered from the celebration of the 14th Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) this September. The DPRM celebration, which centered on building resilient communities, is aimed at educating policymakers and the public on the complex risk landscape confronting the Philippines. It also underscores the role of appropriate policy interventions in building the country's resilience to various economic, environmental, technological, political, and societal risks and stresses. Ergo, this DRN issue (1) deepens the discussion on resilience building in the agriculture, health, macroeconomic, and urban sectors and (2) brings to the fore critical policy issues that could affect the country's capacity to mitigate compounding threats and shocks, such as natural hazards, food and financial crises, and energy price volatility. The role played by the micro, small, and medium enterprises in building a resilient Philippines is also discussed in this issue, as well as the vital lessons that can be learned from the experiences of major Philippine cities in overcoming their vulnerabilities.
