Research Evaluation and Development


The Department of Social Welfare and Development ( DSWD) as a dynamic and evolving organization recognizes the importance of evidence- based information for policy and program development in addressing critical issues and concerns of poor, disadvantage, vulnerable and marginalized sectors of society. As such, the DSWD, including the Central Office, Field Offices and its Centers and Residential Care Facilities is a rich source  of data and information that could be used as basis for research studies along social welfare and development (SWD) as well as social protection. Further, given the mandate of the Department to provide leadership in SWD, it is the Department's responsibility to share experiences and expertise in those fields to those who are interested to conduct research studies.
