Participants were divided into four working groups comprised of (i) country representatives, (ii) regional organization representatives, and (iii and iv) representatives of NGOs and projects. Tasks were allocated as follows:
(a) Country groups were asked to construct an inventory of the minimum institutional and capacity requirements for a workable co-management system.
(b) Regional organizations were asked to elaborate the actions they could take to support the mainstreaming of co-management.
(c) Those representing projects and NGOs were asked to describe the arrangements and activities necessary to support co-management at the local level.
Outcomes of the working group deliberations are tabulated in Annex 5 and are also reflected in the summary conclusions section at the beginning of this report.
