To increase awareness of the general public on the importance of policy research in the policy formulation, planning and decisionmaking process, the month of September every year will be observed in the country as the Development Policy Research Month.

This years celebration, which carries the theme, Policy Research: Instrument for More Responsive Policymaking, is based on Proclamation 247 issued by Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in September 2002.

In Proclamation 247, Pres. Arroyo noted that the observance of Development Policy Research Month will provide the means for promoting, enhancing, instilling and drawing nationwide awareness and appreciation of the importance and necessity of policy research as a tool for national socio-economic development. This will also ensure the support of the public for all activities aimed at advancing the quality and standard of policy research in the country.
