How does it function ?
In 2016, the AIAM5’s Assembly held in Bogotá (Colombia), agreed to create working groups to achieve the objectives outlined in the roadmap. From then on, the groups have met in different ways as “workshops”.
These workshops elaborate the work plan to be improved by groups and committees.
The groups and committees created develop strategic plans for each of them with a periodicity of annual meetings and an active role in the Alliance assemblies and meetings. All works under SMART (specific, measurable, assignable, realistic, time-related) scheme to facilitate the work and integration of the members in each commission.
The 8th AIAM5’s Assembly and the 14th International Congress of Promotion of Fruits and Vegetables Consumption were held from 8th to 10th October, 2018 in the city of Tuxtla Gutiérrez – Mexico.
