The “Training on Inclusive Planning for Local Development Planners: Focused on Older Persons and Persons with Disabilities” was conducted by the Research and Extension for Development Office (REDO) from October 19-21, 2011 at the CSWCD Audiovisual Room. It was a trail blazing effort, a new training course offered by the Office which took cognizance of the invisibility of these sectors in the life of their localities.


The Research and Extension for Development Office (REDO) is one of the academic units of the UP-CSWCD. Specifically, REDO’s functions include (1) theory-building as support to academe; (2) capability building as support to people’s movement and/or social change through training of community leaders and development professionals; and (3) advocacy and networking to influence policies and programs in relation to social development endeavors.
