He said around 300 participants from government agencies, nongovernment organizations, and social development experts will attend the two-day summit.

“The participants and us in the government, would brainstorm on the opportunities, challenges to come up with suggested solutions on land, food and environmental problems,” added Pangulayan. 

Among the cabinet heads expected to attend the summit are Cabinet secretary Leoncio Evasco, DAR Secretary Rafael Mariano, DENR Gina Lopez, and DA Secretary Manny Piñol.
