This is an interactive workshop open session with a debriefing and presentation of the results and a short outline of needed actions/identification of key actors/ timescales.

The questions that we will address are:
-How should development finance support standardization and uptake of DNA methods?
- What present structures and initiatives could serve as stepping stones for future cooperation?
