Dr. Adoracion Navarro
Before joining the Philippine Institute for Development Studies as senior research fellow, Dr. Adoracion Navarro helped provide guidelines, methodologies, toolkits and practical approaches to maximize the use of development finance and public resources.
In 2009, Navarro wrote a concept paper calling for a more logical allocation of grants and subsidies in the water supply and sanitation sector and the use of prioritization criteria based on poverty, incidence of water-borne diseases and water service coverage. Two years later, she developed a concept note that defines tourism-logistics-transportation convergence areas and advocates the use of this definition in harmonizing national and secondary road transport investments.
Navarro’s work at PIDS focuses on evidence-based research studies that aim to provide practical economic planning and policymaking information.
