The UP NOAH Center

The UP NOAH Center is a core component of the UP Resilience Institute. It was formally adopted by the University of the Philippines during the Board of Regents 1325th meeting on February 23, 2017 as a research center for climate actions and disaster risk reduction and management. An Executive Order signed by UP President Danilo L. Concepcion, (EO PLDC 17-03), established the NOAH Center as a research institute in the UP System.

The core of UP NOAH’s work is producing freely accessible, accurate, reliable, and relevant scientific disaster data. It also highlights a multidisciplinary approach in assessing risk and using the lens of different scientific areas. This ensures that Filipinos are provided an integrative appraisal of the natural hazards that put them in danger.

School of Economics

The University of the Philippines School of Economics (UPSE) provides instruction leading to undergraduate and graduate degrees in economics.

UPSE was established in 1965. The Department of Economics is responsible for the academic degree programs, while the Economics Research Center oversees the School’s research projects. A third functional department, the Public Affairs Office, coordinates the School’s various extension, training and public service activities. These are the three pillars the UPSE is known for. Now nearing its 50th year of existence, UPSE adheres to international standards of excellence and constantly introduces innovations in teaching, research and public service. The School is dedicated to making its teaching of economics compare with the best globally.
