BASIC SERVICES FOR THE URBAN POOR
Project Director:          Aprodicio Laquian
Funding Agency:        Asia Foundation

This project consisted of two components: a) an action-research project in the Leveriza Community to provide basic urban services to the residents through a cooperative system; and b) the preparation of a management model for the whole Metro Manila area that features a cooperative system rather than a service-delivery system for providing basic urban services.

Key words: action-research project, basic urban services, cooperative system, management model

 

THE DELIVERY OF BASIC SERVICES IN THREE SELECTED PHILIPPINE URBAN CENTERS: IMPLICATIONS FOR A PARTICIPATORY MANAGEMENT CENTER (PARTICIPATORY (BASIC) URBAN SERVICES)
Project Director:                      Exaltacion C. Ramos
Funding Agency:                    International Development Research Centre

The main objective of the project was to do an inventory of the basic urban services available to the low income areas of three Philippine cities; to identify and define the nature, scope, and magnitude of the basic urban services available to the low income areas that are amenable to a cooperative system of management, with emphasis on people sustaining services/projects; to describe the administrative structures and function as well as the personnel of the cooperative urban management system; and to develop a model that will engage community residents of selected blighted areas and strengthen their participation in the management of basic urban services.

The project was part of a five-nation study sponsored by the IDRC. The other countries involved were Indonesia, Korea, and Malaysia, and included Hong Kong.

Key words: Basic urban services, cooperative management system, low income areas, administrative structures and function

 

A CAREER MATURITY SCALE FOR FILIPINOS: DEVELOPMENT, VALIDATION AND STANDARDIZATION ON METRO MANILA STUDENTS
Project Director:         Josefina Santamaria
Funding Agency:        Integrated Research Center

This study sought to address the need to assess the readiness of students to make career decisions, in view of trends toward career education and career guidance and counseling. It also addresses the need for baseline data of students’ career attitudes and competencies in decision-making to equip guidance counselors with a basis for developing and implementing career guidance and counseling programs. Such baseline data would identify the areas that such programs should focus on, so that limited resources in a school can be utilized more effectively. To achieve this, an instrument to assess this readiness has been developed and standardized.

Key words: career education, career guidance and counseling, career attitudes and competencies, Metro Manila students

 

UPLAND MANAGEMENT PROJECT
Project Directors:        Robert C. Salazar (Apr-Aug '81); Benjamin C. Bernales (Sep '81-Oct '82)
Funding Agency:        Bureau of Forest Development/Upland Development Program

The project sought to determine where and what are the various uplands-oriented projects and programs being implemented by public and private institutions and how similar or different their objectives as well as their strategies are. The project further investigated what the experience of the more successful upland development projects was, particularly in terms of their structure and management, and what efforts and processes led to their relative success.

The project consisted of two sub-projects:
An Inventory and Description of Uplands-Oriented Programs and Projects in the Philippines. In order to arrive at an extensive and comprehensive inventory and description, interviews with officials of both government and private institutions involved in forestry projects were conducted. Likewise, an exhaustive review of literature was to be undertaken to produce a complete listing and description of all programs and projects dealing with upland development in the Philippines.

Four Case Studies of Selected Community Forestry Projects. The triangulation approach using key-informant interviews, review of records, and sample surveys was adopted to meet the project objectives.  To supplement information gathered from earlier methodologies, field observation was done to focus on cases of cooperation and conflict.

Key words: upland development, community forestry, public and private institutions, projects and programs

 

MIGRATION AND DEVELOPMENT
a. MIGRATION AND RURAL RESETTLEMENT IN THE PHILIPPINES
b. GREEN REVOLUTION PROJECT

Project Directors:        Rosemary M. Aquino and Leticia T. Postrado
Funding Agency:        United Nations Asian Pacific Development Center

The interim project preparatory to the full-scale projects entailed writing two case studies on policies/projects that relate to migration and development: (1) a resettlement project, which is a scheme that results in people moving from urban or semi-rural areas to rural areas, and (2) a “Green Revolution” project, which is a project that keeps people in rural areas.

Data used was taken mainly from an extensive review and examination of written articles in the policies of these projects.

Key words: migration and development, resettlement, “Green Revolution”, urban and rural areas

 

URBAN DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS IN THE PHILIPPINES: A REVIEW AND ANALYSIS
Project Director:          Stella P. Go
Funding Agency:        Integrated Research Center

This study focuses on urban development programs initiated by the government and the private sector involving the upgrading of slum areas, provision of housing facilities, and development of squatter resettlement areas, in order to address the problems caused by the heavy influx of migrants to the cities. It has sought to define the nature, thrust, and perspectives of these various urban development programs. The end result is a “state of the art” paper that reviews and analyzes current urban development programs undertaken by the government and the private sector, and makes recommendations for the improvement of such programs.

Key words:  urban development programs, city migrants, squatter resettlement areas, housing facilities

 

AUDIO VISUAL MATERIALS FOR INDUSTRIAL PSYCHOLOGY
Project Director:          Yeung Yeung Yu
Funding Agency:        Integrated Research Center; DLSU Audio-Visual Center

This project has developed sound slides with manuals on the topics motivation to work; leadership styles; interpersonal communication; and organizational climate.  In addition to these, audio-cassette tapes have been made on interviews conducted with behavioral scientists on topics related to management expertise.

Key words: Industrial Psychology, behavioral scientists, management expertise, audio-visual materials
