The P-E development information collected from the national and local level reviews, studies, and documentation of best practices will be stored in the DILG Knowledge Management Center (DILG-KMC).

Conceptually, a forum could be like workshop, consultation, meeting, planning, and similar interaction styles.
More participation in regional and global exchanges on PEI will surely enhance the current PPEI perspective and approach. By encouraging this, more insights could be derived from experiences of countries of similar footing as the Philippines.
