Dear Ingo, how are you doing? Hopefully everything is fine. Have you seen the current discussions of block 5? Several of the topics are on the role of the private sector. Since this is your major topic, would it be nice for you to give a contribution? We are presently lacking a bit of the Brazilian perspectives, hence it would be really good to have some contributions from you, that is, if you have time... thanks a lot. Cora
Hi Ingo, would be a nice topic to tacle in a discussion, maybe also for a teleconference, in which we could invite clients and companies, to convince them that also the private sector has it's responsibilities towards sustainable development. Anyway, let's see how this first discussion will evolve, and keep this topic in mind for future discussions. Bye
Dear Ingo, thanks for joining our group. I like your profile, especially your working in the private sector. We do have few members representing the private sector, while I believe that companies have an increasing role to play in FLR. Maybe we should set up a special thread on private sector development in FLR, and better collaboration between private sector and governments/NGO's in this regard. You will have a lot to share with members from Ghana and Indonesia, esp. with Neil and Tara from APRIL company, who are restoring massive areas in Sumatra island (Indonesia). Other members have started introducing themselves, good timing for you to join in. Can you please upload your picture, so that people can see your face while discussing with you? bye Cora
