The Director of the CPDC Ms. Lara Al Arab thanked the speakers and attendees at the end of the session where she highlighted that this event was not meant to be a single CPDC event, but a starting point for the work that must be done to mitigate this problem once and for all. This will also give structure to our efforts to enhance the CPDC’s work.
