MCP Symposium

The MCP was introduced to more than 80 stakeholders in a workshop on 19 and 20 June at Hotel Verde in Cape Town. The purpose of the event wasd to connect officials who are working on components of the MCP with the places intended for impact, and with each other, and to produce greater intelligence on the status of various projects, current levels of collaboration, and potential gaps/barriers that we might not have identified.
