Session 5: Parallel Dialogs

MAKING CLIMATE-SMART OCEAN ECONOMIES HAPPEN: PUBLIC-PRIVATE DIALOGUES

Background/Objective:

Parallel dialogues will be carried out on six different themes bringing together participants from Government, private sector, CSOs, academia, etc., in a more interactive format. It is recommended that participants choose the Dialogue where they have the most expertise or they wish to make the greatest contribution. They will reflect on the presentations and discussions they heard in the previous sessions and provide recommendations for future action for climate-smart blue economy development in their area.

Expected Action:

Each Dialogue will appoint a rapporteur (perhaps but not necessarily one of the Co-facilitators) to summarize the key findings from the Dialogue and report them to the plenary. The key messages coming out of the Dialogues could be reflected in the Communiqué and Co-chairs’ summary. The co-facilitators will also prepare summaries of their sessions for the record.

 

Documentation:

Co-facilitators will circulate a Facilitators Note in the Parallel Dialogues for each Dialogue.
