Harnessing the Fourth Industrial Revolution: Creating Our Future Today
The Fourth Industrial Revolution (FIRe) is gaining ground in different parts of the world. It is time for the Philippines to embrace it. To harness the opportunities and mitigate the risks emerging from the FIRe, cross-sectoral collaboration and a whole-of-government approach, guided by policy research and inputs from stakeholders, are what we need to CREATE OUR FUTURE NOW.

Fourth Industrial Revolution: New Paradigm for Education and Training
Started in 2015, the APPC aims to convene policy experts and researchers to analyze critical issues relevant to development planning and policymaking. PIDS envisions it to serve as a platform to cultivate a strong culture of research and use of data and evidence among the country's national and local decisionmakers in policymaking and program planning. Through the different topics highlighted in every Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) celebration, this event also aims to raise the public's literacy of important socioeconomic issues.
Critical Perspectives on Federalism for Regional Development
The Duterte administration’s proposal to shift to a federal system demands a bold response and clear action from organizations and individuals. PIDS dedicated the third APPC to initiate an informed and participatory discourse on the major issues surrounding federalism.
Risks, Shocks, Building Resilience
For its second installment, PIDS repackaged the APPC by organizing parallel sessions to discuss the conference theme “Risks, Shocks, Building Resilience”. The sessions delved on the issues affecting the resilience of the macroeconomic, agriculture, urban environment, and health sectors.
Harnessing Our Institutions and Human Capital for Inclusive Growth
Organized by PIDS, the Inaugural Public Policy Conference, which is the first of its kind in the Philippines, was held on September 22, 2015, in Quezon City. The conference, which centered on the theme “Harnessing Our Institutions and Human Capital for Inclusive Growth”, brought together more than 100 participants from all sectors of development in the country.
