  9. 9. Principles for expanding scope of future work of the Forum • Align with other initiatives and avoid duplication • Seek relevant expertise • Foster cross-learning from other initiatives and resources • Expansion should not come at the cost of current implementation programme • Any expansion in scope will require resources and time, and must be demand driven • Any recommendations will need to be considered by the responsible OECD bodies
  10. 10. Future Forum meetings and priority work areas • Thematic vs. supply chain focus – Option 1: One meeting per year open to all participants (Gold and 3T), and second meeting focused on either Gold or 3T – Option 2: One day of each meeting looking at the issues for both Gold and 3T, and spending the other 2 days on either Gold or 3T issues • Upstream vs. downstream – Option: One meeting per year open to all participants (Gold and 3T) full supply chain, and second meeting focused on either upstream (Gold and 3T) or downstream (Gold and 3T) participants • Other geographic focus – Option: One meeting in Paris, one meeting in the African Great Lakes region and beyond (e.g. West Africa, Latin America, Asia)
