The participants were divided into two groups to deliberate on the successes and challenges followed by group presentations. Several good practices were highlighted and success stories narrated by presenters and the event concluded with appreciation for the contribution of IUCN and the SDC for invaluable technical and financial support.
The participants reaffirmed their commitment to continue what they had collectively achieved so far.
