Belmont Forum plenary meeting group photo in Sao Paulo, BrazilAlexandra 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.
