The Training and Support Programme
Country coalitions can be as much in need of negotiating capacity building as individual countries, if they are to function as an effective group. The Group of Least Developed Countries (LDCs) with its progressive potential for the negotiations, in particular, will only be able to make its voice heard by harnessing the considerable potential for synergies between its members.
The Regional Workshops, are meant to foster collaboration in the targeted regions as well as to mainstream the climate change issues by involving officials from mainline ministries. Moreover, they are not restricted to LDCs but open to all the countries in the regions to enable the regional negotiators to meet, exchange views, and if they wish, plan together.
