The winning project team will be expected to report on the results of the study tour and convene a 1 day echo-seminar for members of their GEF demonstration project steering committee following conclusion of the tour. The echo-seminar must inform committee members of key examples of best practice at the study site and how these could assist the IWRM process in their given country.
