The N-Peace Network is pleased to announce the launch of the N-Peace Knowledge & Skills Exchange to provide peace advocates from the network countries – Afghanistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Timor-Leste, Indonesia and the Philippines – with an opportunity to share expertise and best practice, and benefit from each other’s experiences in advancing peace and security.
This exciting initiative will identify innovative initiatives and draw upon the network’ rich experiences, allowing practitioners and their associated organizations to become resource providers for an exchange. On the other end, practitioners can then apply to become a recipient to gain new skills or knowledge that will help them in their work towards building peace and advancing the Women, Peace & Security agenda.
How the Knowledge & Skills exchange works
UNDP Asia-Pacific Regional Centre, under the N-Peace initiative, will facilitate and promote the exchange of knowledge and experiences between peace advocates of the network countries. Exchanges will be selected and supported based on applicants meeting the criteria, and demonstrating how new skills or knowledge will enhance their peace building work and benefit wider networks.
In the first phase of this launch, potential resource providers are invited to apply and put forward areas of expertise or training programmes for the exchange. Once resource providers are identified, applications will be open to apply for an exchange opportunity as provided by the N-Peace partner within one of the six network countries. Following an exchange, lessons learnt will be documented and disseminated to foster wider knowledge exchange within the network.
To apply, or for more information, view the N-Peace Portal Knowledge & Skills Exchange section where criteria for an exchange and the application form to become a resource provider is available.
