What works, what doesn’t, where are the bottlenecks, and how can they be removed? This opening session will set the scene by looking at implementation from a variety of angles, with stories from national, regional and local authorities, business, andelements of civil society. Delegates will be asking can these successesbe replicated in places where they are needed most?
