Local Advisory Commitee Meeting Bolivia

The Local Advisory Committees are made up of individuals, appointed in their personal capacities, but coming from the governments, local institutions, NGOs and peoples organisations in each of the four countries where the Fp7-PALMS-project functions (Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru and Colombia).

These committees are invited when the Fp7-PALMS team meet in their country for a workshop or another meeting. At these meetings they are presented for the projects activities and advances and they are asked to provide advise which is based on their personal and institutional experience. These Local Advisory Committees secure that Fp7-PALMS is always adjusted to local needs and connected to local stake-holders with the purpose of communicating the projects results to them at all levels, from local (village) to government.
