Establishing Priorities for Follow-Up
In order to establish action priorities from among the many useful types of activities that had been identified during the course of the workshop, we returned to the four points that guided the workshop agenda: US-African collaboration; improving the technical, financial, and managerial capacities of the African chemical societies; intra-African collaboration on value-added initiatives; and ensuring continued and expanded communications. Thus we resolved that our selected followup activities would involve something in each of these areas.
Priorities were ultimately established through a process of reviewing the possibilities, voting on their relative importance, and finally vetting a proposal for an overall followup action plan, which is presented below.
