The forum emphasized the importance of regional collaboration among ASEAN stakeholders. In the future, the region is going to be more connected and the sustainability problem should be addressed through regional cooperation. To pursue this objective, ASEAN academia should collaborate to provide evidence-based policy.

Ramanditya also had a chance to visit the largest wind farm in Southeast Asia that covers 600 Ha of land. The renewable energy project is more than enough to fulfill electricity demand of Ilocos Norte.
