Which stakeholders will be engaged for the elicitation activity and why?The conclusion (100-150 words) will summarise any findings or recommendations that the report putsforward regarding the concepts covered in the report.6. The report should use font Arial or Calibri 11 point, should be line spaced at 1.5 for ease of readingand page numbers on the bottom of each page.
