  • How to balance the CELEP work and focal point work with “normal” work?

  • Most CELEP participants are field or program staf: not so much lobby capacity.

  • Not all participants involved and or active: how to do this? Remain broadly owned/carried.

  • Functioning of the Core group.

  • Changes of staff and contacts.

Some challenges:

  • How to keep balance between informal networking and a formal network: how formal do we want to get?
