To this end, workshops were held not only with officials and managers but also with representatives of civil society, NGOs, indigenous community leaders, lawyer’s associations, university representatives, business sector representatives, agrarian sector representatives, and representatives of other public institutions. The workshops were held in several cities across the country and explicitly addressed the regional specifics of each region to capture the diversity of perceptions and needs.
