15 February - 15 April 2013
At the same time as the first public consultation period, a series of Regional Workshops took place in the following Regions: North America, Latin America, Europe & CIS countries, Africa and Asia/Pacific. Key regional and national issues that need to be raised and included in discussions as the IGIs are being developed were flagged at these workshops. Feedback on the IGIs submitted to public consultation was also gathered and transmitted, through Regional Representatives, to the IGI Group. This is to ensure that the IGI Group takes all feedback into account as the next draft IGIs is developed.
