Since 2015, the Platform has advanced technical working groups (TWG) as dedicated initiatives to facilitate exchange amongst expert communities.
The first TWG on the confluence of urban safety and peacebuilding practice generated significant results in terms of networking and advancing new knowledge and thinking on peacebuilding. This TWG has also confirmed this format of networking as an effective means to manage exchanges across sectors and institutions, and between smaller expert groups with the result of deeper network relationships.
As part of its 2018-2019 Programme, the Platform will maintain the existing TWG on urban safety and peacebuilding, develop an additional exchange on business and peace and will advance additional topics though a TWG format as they arise.
