Special Projects


Assessment of the Socio-Economic Impact of the COVID-19 Outbreak in Selected Urban and Rural Communities

This research program deals with the assessment of the socio-economic impact of the Covid 19 in selected urban and rural communities. It aims to:

· To determine the understanding of people from poor urban and rural communities that underwent community quarantine on Covid 19.
· To assess the responses of the families and communities to the Covid 19 epidemic.
· To assess the impact of the Covid 19 interventions on the socio-economic life of the poor and marginalized families in urban and rural communities, particularly looking at the aspect of education, health, economy, pyscho-social, social cohesion and conflict.
· To identify mitigation measures to reduce the adverse effects of the Covid 19 interventions and ways to recover the socio-economic life from the impact of the epidemic.

The study has two components, namely: Component A – research in Quezon City and Laguna, supported by the University of the Philippines and Component B – research in Manila and Pampanga, supported by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).
