Khalid Mohtadullah, Chairperson of UIB Network, chaired the meeting. Two strategic committee members, two advisors and three special invitees (from ICIMOD) participated in the meeting.

Mr Mohtadullah highlighted the significance of integration of UIB Network. Representing the UIB Secretariat, Abdul Wahid Jasra reported on the progress and hurdles of instigating action points of the previous meeting. He shared the communication with Gilgit Baltistan government regarding ICIMOD’s planning to support the government for a provincial climate change adaptation action plan.
