Regional consultations conducted twice a year. These meetings primarily served as a forum to discuss RAI implementation issues that CSOs would like to raise. The meeting agenda had linkages to RAI RSC meetings, and the regional consultation meetings are usually organized a few days before the RSC meeting. The consultations allowed a structural and constituency-based approach for the Platform to contribute to the RSC discussions, particularly on CSOs related issues. Moreover, the meetings allow the CSOs to learn and share information (peer-learning), the representatives to better understand implementation updates, challenges, and prioritizing issues to be discussed at the RSC level.
