PCCB side event - audience question
Question from audience member
Created in 2015, the PCCB aims to address current and emerging gaps and needs in implementing capacity-building in developing countries and to further enhance capacity-building efforts. At each COP, the PCCB organizes a side event to inform interested Parties and Non-Party stakeholders about its latest work and activities, and to create a space for interactive discussions and exchanges with the speakers and among the participants.
