Working Groups
One of the ways in which UN agencies collaborate at an operational level is through Thematic Working Groups (TWGs). Throughout 2004 there were 13 TWGs within the UN system in Thailand, mostly with a regional focus.

In the latter part of 2005 regional TWGs have been reorganized and streamlined under the leadership of ESCAP, while TWGs at the Country Team level will be reformed to focus on CCA/UNDAF priorities. This arrangement was designed to lead into more active and more efficient country-level programming, focusing on priority areas and in pursuit of key common objectives - therefore in keeping with the spirit of UN Reform.
