BG/FAPESP will validate the selection.

Delegates form into work groups to undertake further work on the project areas prioritised in each of the four challenge topics, and produce output in accordance with a guidance note to be circulated at the workshop. Each theme will have a “core” group of delegates pre-allocated to it – the remainder of the attendees will self select their groups, and may transfer between groups at the end of each syndicate session.

Some of these syndicate sessions (Session 2) may incorporate short presentations by some of the international delegates where they have experience or relevant input appropriate to the work group topic area.
