Other organizational matters
Time allocation: The workshop comprised of three-hour sessions on 10 November 2017.  Each Party was allocated 40 minutes on average, as follows: 

a. Presentation –20 minutes per Party on average to present their BUR;
b. Question and answer –20 minutes per Party on average after each presentation.

In the event that the Party undergoing FSV received none or very few questions, the total time allocated to that Party was shortened. Upon completion of the question and answer session for one Party, the next Party was invited to begin its presentation.

The workshop was streamlined live on YouTube and made publicly available on the secretariat's website.

Output of the FSV: A record of the FSV, summarizing the presentation by the Party and corresponding interaction with other Parties, was prepared, under the guidance of the SBI Chair, for each Party that went through the FSV. This, together with the summary report, constitute the final output of the ICA for each Party.
