Localizing IP Team
The AER IP Team does research and policy analysis on the quality of growth, employment, the institutional infrastructure for planning and program implementation, and does specific industry studies. It has a Special Project on Localizing Industrial Development Planning, with pilot areas in the Yolanda-stricken areas in Eastern Visayas for 2014-2015, which seeks to respond to the challenge of maximizing rehabilitation resources towards a socio-economic outcome that is more inclusive, resilient, sustainable and equitable. Specifically, it calls for planning and targeting for quality employment and strong agro-industrial base, as well as for a politically active constituency that will engage this process.
The Localizing Industrial Development Planning is spearheaded by the AER IP Team and academics from the Visayas State University and the Eastern Samar State University.
