Hosted by Obed Koringo Meet-and-greets are a great way to get to know some of your fellow participants in a small informal space, chat with highly experienced adaptation practitioners and build your networks. Without an in-person conference, think of the meet-and-greets as a virtual coffee break, where you can ask direct questions of the people you want to talk to! In the last two years, participants at meet-and-greets have met new partners, collaborators, donors and friends!
