In addition, the inception workshop, thematic group meetings, strategic technical committee meetings, focus group meetings, community consultations etc have ensured the effective participation of relevant stakeholders. The NCSA project has a multi-stakeholder outlook and plans to foster partnerships between government and non-government agencies, universities, research organizations and even the private sector in the process. Suggestions from various meetings, discussions and consultations have given definite shape to the future actions of the NCSA document: to explore the national resources such as the government’s budget allocations, to utilize existing national training institutes for disseminating knowledge across sectors, to facilitate interagency coordination and retain institutional memory by assigning focal points.
