The conference sought to bring out diverse responses to the growing environmental and socio-political concerns in the region, and not just come up with one response that fits all. It sought to present a “fit-for-purpose” framework or strategy for research and planning development by bringing in people who use interdisciplinary scientific approaches to address urgent local and national challenges within the context of (i) sustainability science, (ii) local wisdom, risk resilience and adaptation and (iii) youth and values formation. The conference sought to develop more critical understanding about transformative land and water governance generated through knowledge and experiences shared from Mindanao, the Philippines and beyond. The conference also generated collaborative engagements among participants on topics that promote sustainability science, disaster risk resilience and youth and values formation.
