In Friday 16th there will be an International High Level Workshop on Drought Policies in the Arid and Semi arid regions of the world meeting. This is part of the conference, and some people may be interested in staying one more day for this meeting, and for that we will focus on regional participation (from Brazil and Northeast Brazil) with some international participation from people from the Adaptation Futures Conference that wish to attend the workshop.
