Belmont Forum Plenary Meetings in Sao Paulo, Brazil
Alexandra Fries recently traveled to Sao Paulo, Brazil to help facilitate the Belmont Forum Plenary Meetings
Week, November 6-10, 2017. The Belmont Forum
is a group of funders that support international transdisciplinary research
providing knowledge for understanding, mitigating, and adapting to global environmental change
. These meetings brought together 65 attendees from more than 15 countries around the world. IAN helped the Belmont Forum
prior to the event by creating materials such as the agenda, a booklet, templates, posters, a song, and videos. The session Alex facilitated was about how the Belmont Forum can be better at building capacity, engaging stakeholders, and measuring impacts of the projects they fund.
