N-Peace Launches New Initiative to Promote Knowledge Sharing Across Countries

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.

Call out for resource providers – applications open! 

Do you have an area of expertise or training programme that you would like to make available for an exchange? If you are a member of an organization working on peace building and security issues and you wish to be featured as a potential resource provider for the N-Peace exchange programme -apply today!

Hey, my name is Eliot Moleba, a playwright and director based in South Africa. I'm currently working on an international theatre project which will bring a few countries together to share cultural and artistic strategies and methods on how we can solve social and economic changes affecting our different nations. The focus will be on themes such as xenophobia, human rights, social security, etc. This will be a creative research project which we will run in collaboration with Africa's leading academic and cultural institutions. The primary goal is to understand how a common social problem affects our different countries and come up with a creative solution in the form of a performative text which will be toured among the participating countries in local theatres, schools and university to build the conversation into a national and international dialogue. We will publish articles, essays and give serminars in order to encourage a wider international participation.

If you could potentially be interested in something like this to be part of your program please let me know. You can reach me on: eliot.moleba@yahoo.com

Thanks!
