Theme 1 Visit: 17-20 May

Theme 1: Sustainability Science 

This group focuses on understanding socioeconomic dynamics in the rural context of Mindanao. This will look into the economics of agribusiness, particularly maize production for animal feed in the villages of Bendum, Silae, Busdi and Mapulo in the Upper Pulangi Valley in Northeastern Bukidnon. This visit would also try to understand family food security within those villages and how it influences family structures and youth migration in the area.
