Description of your country (e.g. geographical location, history, political stance, role in development as a donor or recipient etc)
One or two interesting facts about your country
What problems are faced by the population of your country
Why are these problems significant to your country
What help do you need from the rest of the world, if any at all
What to post to the discussion board:
