The event was attended by nearly 50 speakers and delegates from eleven countries (Botswana, Ethiopia, Germany, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Republic of Korea, Senegal, South Africa and Zambia). International organizations were represented through UNESCO and the International Labour Organization (ILO), along with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Germany's agency for international cooperation.
