One of the main achievement of this workshop was the discussion among the climate focal points, very glad to see that they have now institutionalized permanent communication within the COMIFAC. This means that opportunities for collaboration in terms of projects, communication and common initiatives will be discussed regularly”, noted Federico Villatico Campbell, CTCN regional manager for Latin and Central America, West and Central Africa.
