Please note that the bellow list does not capture all the islands ICP team will/ have visited. This builds on a number of visits the team will / has made at end of last year / start of this while joining the SG Islands team and CHFS3 team on their engagement visits. The local arrangements are still being made and the team would appreciate any help you could offer around practicalities, publicity, and local contacts on each of the islands. As time to make arrangements is becoming more pressing, I would appreciate any support as soon as possible.
