Building strong partnerships based on mutual respect, shared goals, and long-term collaboration is essential. Such partnerships should leverage the strengths and resources of each region to address challenges effectively. Sharing expertise, resources, and best practices in STEAM areas can contribute to problem-solving and prevention efforts."
