Discipline: Ecology



The paper discusses the sociocultural and global perspective in heritage conservation of the Ifugao Rice Terraces. It discusses the physical environment and the spiritual and/or non-physical dimensions, the amphitheater sanctuary of human-demigods-nature rendezvous, the socio-cultural transitions, gaps in traditional-modern living, the opportunities and challenges for globalization, and situating the IRT in the meta-action state cooperation dynamics.
