The afternoon sessions were dedicated to practical group work centred on real-life case studies followed by presentations by representatives of the groups. The participants were divided into groups which worked on different case studies capturing the pertinent issues covered in the plenary lectures.

After the group work, the groups presented their responses to discussion questions pertaining to the specific case studies allocated to them.
