Community Profiling Study (CPS) and Community Needs Assessment (CNA)

| Written by Padayon UP


The CPS aims to develop baseline profiles of the communities, while the CNA aims to examine the communities’ current conditions and needs. The CPS and CNA will be helpful in the formulation of barangay integrated development plans by the development council, as well as in social development and management interventions. The DSDS has already conducted more than 300 community profile studies and community needs assessment in Laguna and Rizal since 1981.
