The second round tables of the Initiative have now taken place in both Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana. Participation has been diverse and broad for both meetings with high level representatives from the government, industry and civil society organizations.
Participants were asked to break into three discussion groups and identify 3-5 priority actions they felt would need to be addressed by the Framework of Action around the issues of Sustainable Production, Forest Protection and Inclusion. The roles of the private and public sector in taking the agenda forward were discussed.
