Abstract

At the close of the workshop, a facilitated session was held to explore future directions for the control and management of classical swine fever (CSF) and foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) in Lao PDR. The workshop was attended by experts in their fields from the People’s Republic of China, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Lao PDR and Australia, and other representatives from a range of nongovernment organisations and international development projects. The session was designed in such a way as to best capture the skills and experience of attending delegates to progress ideas in an environment where all participants were able to make a contribution to the discussion. The workshop participants were divided into five groups in a manner to ensure an even representation across countries. Two leaders were assigned to each group, one to record answers on a whiteboard and the other to facilitate discussion within the group. The leadership personnel comprised Lao and Australian project staff and the session was facilitated by the first author. The session method is described in Figure 1.
