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.
