The Annual Public Policy Conference (APPC) is the main and culminating activity of the Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) celebration held every September. The 8th APPC will feature the theme “#CloseTheGap: Accelerate Post-pandemic Recovery through Social Justice” in a four-part webinar series.

This fourth and last webinar in the series will be on September 22, from 9:00 to 11:30 am, via Zoom. It will feature the topic “Environmental Resilience and Climate Change”. Through esteemed local and international speakers, this session will answer the following questions:

  • How can we address the welfare of the most susceptible groups, including cultural minorities, to shocks?
  • How can we build safe and sustainable communities with reduced vulnerabilities among the poor and marginalized groups?
  • How can the government provide equitable access to safe and sustainable communities given vast differences in social, physical, and economic determinants?
