This part of the web site allows participants to submit comments and questions from the floor through their laptops or other electronic devices for consideration during each session of the workshop. This is useful for enabling the participants to raise comments and questions conveniently, and discreetly, if that is their wish.

In each session, questions and comments will be taken up in 3 rounds as follows:

Round #1What are the remaining issues to be resolved and what are the key barriers and gaps that stand in the way?
Round #2What specifically do we agree and disagree on?
Round #3What options should be tabled for bridging to resolution?
