CIFAL Philippines


UP CIFAL Philippines specializes in training and research on migration and development and gender equality, and how these two themes are located within the overarching framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. These thematic areas were chosen as the focus of the work of UP CIFAL Philippines based on the relevance of the SDGs in local, national, and regional development plans, the importance of the issues of international migration and gender equality in the regional context, and the expertise developed by state and non-state actors in addressing these concerns at the policy and programs levels.

UP CIFAL Philippines also works on related issues such as climate change and disaster risk reduction, focusing especially on how these issues relate to migration and mobility.
