The second day of the workshop continued with the topic of Deforestation, in which two resource persons, Jean-Marc Roda (CIRAD/University Putra Malaysia) and Janice Lee (Nanyang Technological University), presented their material. The topic for the third day was certification, with two attending resource persons, namely Alain Rival (CIRAD) and Dupito D. Simamora (CPOPC). On the final day, the workshop presented videos from 10 groups on the three previous topics.
