We offer several different types of events to our member countries that are aimed at increasing capacity building, mutual learning, and exchange
Every year, a member country hosts the five-day event. The annual meeting includes emerging producers and more established producers, as well as subject matter experts, non-governmental organisations and industry representatives. The meeting includes international discussions, interactive training sessions, a national seminar for the host country to debate policy issues, and public information sessions.
We organise and convene in-depth workshops on specific issues and national seminars for stakeholders to debate policy direction. The content and agenda of these workshops are driven by hosting countries.
Member countries have access to training sessions on a range of topics. The duration of these sessions can vary from one to 7 days depending on the topic and on the level of depth needed. Training is delivered in person in a host country or in an interactive live format online.
We organise online workshops for our Working Groups and for the Fostering Resilience in Crisis series. We also deliver training online.
