How did our Solar System and other planet systems form? Which systems are most likely to host life-bearing planets? These are among the most fundamental questions in astrophysics. Here, I will discuss how combining observations of disks around young stars and exoplanets sheds light on these questions. I will show how the physical evolution and dispersal of planetforming disks shape planetary systems. I will also present an ongoing effort to observationally trace the evolution of volatiles in disks with implications on planets composition and volatile delivery to terrestrial planets.
