Members of the Towards A Safer World (TASW) network are committed to improving their expertise and increasing their effectiveness. They do this by exchanging, testing, refining and promoting their approaches, drawing on lessons of experience, and building a compendium of best practice. They offer examples to each other, they identify techniques they have found to be useful, and they ensure that all have a chance to see research outputs, project reports and case studies that might be useful. They do this through exchanging information either face to face or via the TASW network newsletter. This is the fifth issue of the newsletter. Each issue isavailable on TASW website at http://www.towardsasaferworld.org . Feedback from network members suggests that they are appreciated by members of the network and by wide range of other stakeholders.
