The Improving Practice Webinar Series
The Improving Practice Webinar Series is a great opportunity to learn from our experts, to hear more about interesting case studies from all over the world and to familiarise yourself with GPPAC tools.
Within GPPAC, one of our core activities is capacity-building. Through these Improving Practice webinars, we aim to improve the way conflict prevention and peacebuilding is done in practice, based on the principles of human security and a multi-stakeholder approach, by developing the capacities of civil society and engaging governmental actors. Our experts from the Improving Practice Working Group, who have years of experience in the field, will share their expertise and lessons learned, to fuel international discussion. This is one of the ways through which GPPAC, as a global network, works to enable regional and global exchanges for cross-regional learning.
Each webinar is tailored by the webinar host, but in general, the webinar consists of a thematic presentation followed by an interactive discussion.
