Virtual tools

enter image description here

Adobe Connect is becoming a standard tool within FAO to facilitate distance work. It allows working on documents on screen while being in communication with other participants. This virtual meeting tool does not require installation of software. However, it requires the use of a headset and the previous installation of the latest version of Adobe Flash (which can be downloaded from the Internet).

The IPPC Secretariat began using virtual meeting tools with expert working groups (EWGs) and technical panels (TPs) in June 2011. The Secretariat can make specific arrangements with FAO Offices in countries to use these tools.

Please note that the installation and use of electronic tools may require prior approval of your organization's IT services.
