Various topics were discussed, including the presentation of the catalogue of AVN proposals, the AVN-AFD Program Agreement having started in November 2022, the Building Energy Efficiency Plan (PEEB) drawn up by the AFD Energy Department, the ACACIAS project, the organisation of a workshop marking the end of the EuropeAid project in June and the ambitions of AVN in Benin.

The visit to a NV site under construction enabled the delegation to meet the learners and their trainer.
