The UN Working Group on Transitions (WGT) was established as one of the standing working groups of the UNDG. Its purpose is to act as a collaborative forum between the UN Development Group (UNDG) and the Executive Committee on Humanitarian Affairs (ECHA), to develop policy and provide guidance on issues relating to transition environments.

The Working Group was initially established to ensure a seamless transition from emergency relief response to longer term more sustainable recovery and development programming in both complex emergencies and situations of disasters caused by natural hazards. The WGT was focused on addressing key challenges prevalent in transition environments characterized by both capacity and resource gaps and inconsistent leadership, prior to longer-term planning and programming being established.

The working group sought to address these challenges by leading the development of policy, guidance and joint action to ensure strategic and operational collaboration and coherence of UNDG and ECHA agencies on these issues.
