Baltic Development Forum has facilitated the BSR IPAs cooperation process throughout the last 2 years, which resulted in a need to identify more systematic and sustainable collaboration models. To meet that demand, BDF is working on a Business Plan to outline how effective collaboration between BSR IPAs can be organized.
