This is a wondeful question. AFAAS is currently in the process of identifyng and documenting technical persons from Africa and beyond and clustering them in thematic areas. These will then constitute the expert groups that will respond to questions. Suggestions on technical persons from you will be most appreciated. You email us at; email@example.com
As also discussed during our FFS meeting in Entebbe, a week ago, this is possible. Most importantly as mentioned by Faith, we are strenghening our thematic working groups to effectively engage in the VSNP hence forming a virtual pool of experts in different thematic areas. The facilitation team is supporting this effort. We look forward to FAO active engagement.
