In the following video you can hear the head of the IRF commit his organisation to use IRF’s resources and convening power, together with others, to take on congestion.
I have it on good authority (the man to my right in the picture below), that this was added to the planned remarks as a result of the work that several people, including me, did to raise awareness of the congestion issue at the Congress.
I don’t want to declare victory in any sense, but this was the best possible outcome I could hope for at the Congress.
Thanks again to my wonderful network for helping me to be there. Watch this space as we create a platform for real change.
