The Philippines is undergoing a twin transition, encompassing the interconnected processes of green transformation and digitalization. While this transition presents opportunities, such as promoting positive environmental impact through technology, it also amplifies existing challenges and gives rise to new ones.
In 2023, the Philippine Institute for Development Studies dedicated the Ninth Annual Public Policy Conference (APPC) to discussing how green efforts and digitalization intersect. Through a four-part plenary session, international and local experts discuss policy actions and strategies on how to manage the twin transition as a way forward for the Philippines to rebuild in the post-COVID-19 era, address climate change, and work toward achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. 
This publication compiles insights from the APPC 2023, providing recommendations for areas needing immediate attention such as human capital development, trade and industry, and responsible use of artificial intelligence. It aims to serve as a practical resource for the public and policymakers alike in making informed decisions concerning the crucial role of the twin transition in shaping a sustainable, inclusive, and prosperous future for all.
