During the workshop, the participants were familiarized with tools for analyzing the situation, identifying problems that are important for citizens, and developed the draft work plans of the PC SBs. The workshop was productive and interactive, where all the participants had opportunity to share experiences, express their ideas, and return home with plans for further activities.
