Preparatory Phase

In preparation for the IX Summit of the Americas, spaces were provided so that civil society organizations and social actors could present their priorities and concerns at the national and regional levels, receive training, address the thematic pillars of the IX Summit, formulate recommendations and present them to government representatives in the framework of the negotiations prior to the IX Summit, among others.

Thematic subregional Working Groups

During the preparatory phase, 15 thematic subregional working groups were formed to facilitate a dialogue aimed at formulating recommendations on the five themes that would then be presented, by spokespersons, to government representatives during the negotiation of the Summit's political commitments.
