In person here means: FGDs, town halls, student debates, citizen panels Online: people who have participated in an online survey, a facebook chat or a google hangout. Ie, not someone who has clicked on a webpage. Some form of engagement. Marginalized groups: people with disabilities, minorities, people living with HIV/AIDS, migrants
Metrics and Timing: How long it would take for people of Moldova to attain the desired level of welfare
Kosovo:Kosovans, without much hope imagine a world where public officials spend money justly and wisely, bureaocratic processes don’t depend on kickbacks or friendships, enforcement is reliable and even handed and most of all consultations actually result in change
Raisedexpections: UNCTs may need support and encouragement thinking about what happens after consultations conclude. How to support government follow up both as constituents in the GA and domestically? How to keep the momentum on decentralized, social media savy engagement as opposed to technocratic seminars?

Some highlights “People don’t go to the doctor because they do not have money and there is corruption.

When I see teachers who teachecology I ask them how they can look their students in the eye when they teach their subject. Everything in the area is destroyed, the lake hasdried. Environmental degradation did not happen by itself. It is a result of people’s attitude towards nature. - Kazakhstan
