"In response to the many Knowledge Management and sharing initiatives across the United Nations system, the purpose of this sub-group of the KM4Dev network is to provide a forum for interested members to discuss issues, exchange resources, share experiences and plan initiatives and events on Knowledge Management within and across UN organizations globally."

This group is open to all staff who are interested in KM within UN organizations which can connect with each other through the members list and the group wall below.

In addition, we have established a mailing list on DGroups (as a sub-group to KM4Dev) which, however, is only open to UN staff members or consultants currently working for the UN (click here to see list of eligible UN bodies):

To request an invitation to this group, please send a request email to including the name of your UN organization.

Happy to find and join this group. I have been working in the knowledge industry for more than 10 years now, and also about to complete my M.S. from Columbia University in the field. I am specializing in Knowledge Networking and social learning/collaboration/CoPs. 

Let me know if there is any related event, discussion or work opportunity, and I would be happy to collaborate.

Hi colleagues,

I was wondering whether any of you would have some good practices or lessons to share around documentation of Global Programmes? I am looking for ideas on formats, time frames and processes so the programme manager can share useful information onn a regular basis with donors, partners and stakeholders.

Dear Shaheen
A discussion on KM systems to support One UN was just launched on the UN's co-ordination practice Network (CPN) started by the One UN Team in Vietnam. It might be worthwhile to join this discussion. I have also had a similar query from Rwanda who are at an early stage in the process. Madagascar have done some work on this and responded to the query. If you are not a member of CPN here is a link to the joining instructions:

Dear Members, I am currently working on information management systems to support the One UN pilot in Pakistan, particulary on tools for the UNCT to monitor overall funding contributions (core and non-core), and also to monitor overall progress on the One Programme. I would be interested to know if anyone else is working on similar solutions. I am also interested to know if anyone is working on systems/solutions particularly in support of overall improved aid effectiveness, either internally or externally with host governments. I look forward to hearing from you!

in this field, for example approaches to improve the efficiency of
information and knowledge sharing, especially the tacit and explicit
knowledge, within a particular VCoP. The results of this research will
