The aim was to bring together in-country field representatives of ABCG partners with US-based staff and other relevant stakeholders to share work products developed by ABCG Extractive Industries Group and develop a strategic approach for further addressing extractive industry and biodiversity issues in the DRC and possibly neighboring countries in FY 2012. Presentations included:
