4th Targeted Regional Workshop for GEF IW Projects in Latin America & the Caribbean
The GEF IW:LEARN project, whose latest phase became active in 2016 and runs through 2020, has as one of its primary activities, the organization of regional workshops for GEF IW projects in three GEF regions: Latin America & the Caribbean, Asia & the Pacific, and Africa. The workshops are also about transferring management approaches, tools and best practices amongst GEF projects and partners. Together with project-project twinning exchanges and the GEF Biennial International Waters Conference, these face-to-face training activities are part of a cycle of learning and partnership building across the portfolio and its partners.
