In Conclusion n In evaluating the work that has been undertaken, and in looking to better serve the member states through the CIE: n n Which of the resources and mechanisms for cooperation do you consider to be the most useful and of greatest interest? How can CIE programs and projects be better disseminated and publicized so more people know about them and participate in them, and so more people use the resources provided? With what additional potential partners in the region and/or in your countries should we be partnering? Are there additional actions that we should be taking to make this work more effective? If these actions involve additional costs, what sources of funding might be tapped? Organization of American States Executive Secretariat for Integral Development
