Let’s talk! Discussion is central to finding lasting solutions for our region. Whether at the grassroots or ministerial level it is through discussion that we identify issues, problems and solutions. Discussion is what drives planning, and the DLIST community which includes people at all tiers of society can contribute a great deal to developing a comprehensive Strategic Action Plan for the ASCLME region. It is through discussion along the vertical axis that has community at one end and government at the other, that we can ensure that the agendas of all parties receive attention when priorities are set and plans are agreed upon. The aim is to develop mechanisms that will make ‘top down, bottom up’ interaction a common feature of planning for the future. DLIST makes it possible for a wide range of people in the entire ASCLME region to reach out to one another and to people in other parts of the world.

You can either take part in the open discussion forum under ‘General discussion’ or you can have discussions about a specific topic within a dedicated group. Share your ideas and experiences and contribute to the building of a future for our region and the people in it.
