  • Conduct of researches
  • Maintenance of POPDEV database and information system
  • Conduct of IEC/advocacy activities (e.g. Popularization of State of the Philippine Population Reports, PopDev Week)
  • Conduct of Innovative Projects
  • Monitoring of Population movement through the Migration information Centers
