The Initiative jointly with PhytoTrade Africa organized a Public-Private Sector Dialogue for Southern Africa in July 2012 in Maputo. The goal was an informed exchange between the public and private sectors on the development of regional value chains and regulations at the national level. The participants agreed on institutionalizing their exchange, a first step towards a regional ABS Help Desk dealing with real cases.

In May 2011, the ABS Initiative organized the first ABS Capacity Development Workshop for Lusophone African countries in Mozambique.
