Seminars and Special Events
IPC's analytical work and recommendations are disseminated via seminars held around the world. The seminars are the focus of IPC's event-related outreach to a broad audience. Frequently, IPC partners with national or regional groups located in the host country, allowing it to tailor the seminars to local interests. The seminars serve not only to highlight timely issues, but also to address local stakeholders and decision-makers in the host countries, thereby ensuring a country-specific context for IPC's messages.
