Publication Detail
PIDS Book 2017-03: Risks, Shocks, Building Resilience (Proceedings of the Second Annual Public Policy Conference 2016)

In view of the country's increasing vulnerability and exposure to risks and shocks, the Philippine Institute for Development Studies dedicated the Second Annual Public Policy Conference (APPC) to the discussion of building resilient systems in the Philippines under the theme, "Risks, Shocks, Building Resilience". The APPC convened experts to share their views on the formulation of appropriate and timely policy interventions to build resilience in the country from various socioeconomic perspectives. It specifically covered issues affecting the macroeconomic, agriculture, urban environment, and health sectors to underscore the need for a multidisciplinary approach in resilience building.

These conference proceedings present the evidence-based policy research studies discussed during the APPC. The Institute hopes that the recommendations raised in this publication may inspire further discussions and actions on building resilience that can lead to an economic growth that is both sustainable and inclusive.
