8th PHDR Inception Workshop

As part of the development of the upcoming Philippine Human Development Report (PHDR), the Human Development Network organized an inception workshop which was held last April 28, 2015, at the Mercedes Concepcion Seminar Room, Philippine Social Sciences Center, Diliman, Quezon City.

The workshop was undertaken in order to gather insights and recommendations from leading thinkers in the academe, government and civil society on the proposed PHDR theme, “Wealth, Inequality and Human Development in the Philippines.” National Anti-Poverty Commission Lead Convenor Sec. Joel Rocamora provided key reflections on the issue of inequality in the country, while HDN President Dr. Emmanuel de Dios facilitated the discussions during the workshop.
