SEED has envisaged, “Minds of KP”as a loose alliance of notable business and intellectual leaders, engaging them in a conversation on economic and urban development in KP. SEED has structured Minds of KP to help inform KP’s reform agenda and SEED’s interventions to a broadbased community using widest possible participation
SEED will setup Peshawar Policy Exchange (PPE) as a virtual/physical forum designed to facilitate discussions through seminars and webinars on key policy issues facing KP Government every month. The topics of these events will be linked with SEED’s work plan and priority areas and will bring together thought leaders and practitioners on the subject.
