3.Composition of Discussion Participants

In the past, organizing the membership of discussion groups was based on the preference of the participant who indicates his choice by registering to join a group. Evidently, the merit of this approach is that it ensures the satisfaction of the participants and is expected to encourage more lively participation. This year, however, it is intended to organize the  group discussions in line with the Main Theme and the above –mentioned related themes that underpin the Main Theme. It is therefore, believed that rationally grouping participants around discussion themes based on the nature of their work, their expertise, or exposure will ensure more proactive discussion and  realistic recommendations.

  1. Preparation of Briefs

Each group is expected to prepare an introductory brief / discussion paper to help initiate and guide the discussion process. A short guide for preparing this brief is attached to this Guideline.

  1. Two rapporteurs will be selected from each group
  2. The Chairperson of the Group shall be assisted by the Co-Chairperson, expert panelist and  the facilitators
  3. Presentation of Group reports

7.1.In order to ensure a structured and uniform approach to the discussion and to the presentation of the report, groups are advised to focus on/adopt the following broad framework guided by the brief:-

-Progress or Major Achievements

-Problems or Major Challenges

-Way Forward and Recommendations

In order to ensure that reports are structures this way, Chairpersons are advised to steer the flow of the discussion along the broad outlines indicated above and observe strict balanced time allotment. This will help to wind up the discussion on time and have sufficient time for report writing.

7.2.Groups are required to make short (5-10 minutes) power-point presentations at the plenary meeting through their chairpersons/ rapporteurs beginning at 08:30 on Friday, 09 November, 2017.

  1. Group report presentations have to be made ready, and electronic copies must be given to the organizers before 18:30, Thursday 08 November, 2017.
