Community-Driven Development and Social Capital: Designing a Baseline Survey in the Philippines


The baseline survey was conducted by the Asia- Pacific Policy Center in each of the three geographical areas of the Philippines, covering four provinces included in Phase 3 of KALAHI-CIDSS implementation: Albay in Luzon, Capiz in the Visayas, and Zamboanga del Sur and Agusan del Sur in Mindanao. The respondents for the surveys were selected using multi-stage stratified random sampling.

The survey captures info rmation on household and village conditions in intervention and comparison communities. Primarily, these data provide baseline information for an evaluation of the impact of KALAHI-CIDSS on poverty reduction, social capital, empowerment, and governance. The data also make possible a deeper understanding of the areas in which KALAHI-CIDSS operates. Together with lessons learned from project implementation to date, the baseline survey provides valuable information for project management. In future rounds, a qualitative component will allow for triangulation of information and a richer and more detailed analysis
