He stressed how the APR has evolved and grown not only in numbers but in content and structure. He said, "you told us that the APR was too much focused on IFAD concerns and not enough on thematic issues, and we listened". This APR will be giving people more time to share on substantive issues, through a variety of formats such as chat show, peer assist, fishbowl, speed sharing, mini-workshops and one-on-one sessions. "Of course", Thomas added, "also through corridor chats and coffee breaks".
Have a great APR everyone. We are looking forward to the next three days of discussions and learning.
