The outreach component is implemented thorough a series regional (Web) seminars and they serve various purposes such as information sharing on the progress of the drafting of the guidance notes and the schedule of global consultations, feedback gathering from compilers, and introducing the experimental estimates component of the update.
The seminars have been planned in two different phases, as the research agenda progresses:
- Inception seminars where a bread view and the status of the update is brought to country members;
- Thematic seminars where the main regional priority issues are discussed in more detail
The calendar, topics, and links to the outreach seminar activities (updated regularly) are in the table below.
