I am following up on the discussion the ALT have just had on the
Outreach that is likely to happen in Marrakesh.
It appears that 4 hours have been cast aside, due to the new meetings
strategy designating Marrakesh as a "Meeting A", for the ALAC and
Regional Leaders to perform "outreach". This is course is a bit of a
vague word that could mean anything.
I have asked Aziz Hilali for an update on this. Baher Esmat and Pierre
Dandjinou have met with him and together they visited Rabat, Casablanca
and Marrakesh. They had a meeting with the Leadership of Marrakesh
University. As a result, it is expected that Pierre Dandjinou should be
signing an MoU with them to organise some Capacity Building / Outreach
sessions for students and staff alike.
Perhaps the ALAC should actively follow-up with Pierre to get this
organised ASAP. As for whether a full At-Large delegation or a sub-team
is needed, I'd suggest that we could have a sub-team that feels strongly
about Capacity building & Outreach. Perhaps that's a task for our own
Sub-Committee on outreach?
