Register now for the KM4Dev meeting and the Knowledge Share Fair May 25-28 2010 Cali, Colombia

We are pleased to invite you to attend the KM4Dev meeting and the Knowledge Share Fair for Latin America and The Caribbean which will take place in the week of May 24, 2010 at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) in Cali, Colombia.

About the KM4Dev meeting

This year the event will be connected to the below-mentioned CGIAR-FAO Knowledge Fair. During that event many cases and experiences will be shared among participants. This will enable the KM4Dev meeting to build on what precedes it and move the network to a higher degree of development. Therefore the program will have two core threads. The first one will provide the space to strengthen the network itself and to identify new projects and collaborative actions within the region and beyond. The second one will provide a space to explore new techniques, methodologies and approaches to knowledge sharing and information management processes. The agenda is included here:

About The Fair

We received more than 90 proposals from more than 10 countries. Therefore we have been able to design a most interesting tentative agenda which you can preview at:

The event is being organized by the Information and Communications Technology and Knowledge Management Program (ICT-KM) of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), the Knowledge Management for Development Community (KM4Dev), and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT).

This Fair emphasizes Latin America and the Caribbean as a region, and has the following objectives:

· Demonstrate how formal and informal knowledge sharing improves the effectiveness, efficiency, and impact of working activities

· Share and learn from each other’s good practices

· Provide staff from different organizations with the opportunity to get to know and learn from each other to create linkages and networks for future collaboration

· Develop ideas to support and enhance knowledge sharing within and across organizations

· Experiment with tools and methodologies for knowledge sharing

The Fair will be structured in exhibition stands, hands-on training, and facilitated sessions with interactive modes of presenting the activities, focusing on experiences and lessons learned (see attached tentative agenda). Participants will explore how different face-to-face knowledge sharing methods and e-tools can be applied to their work and present innovative solutions that encourage effective collaboration, networking, and leadership.

The week consists in 3 events:

1. A pre-event: The meeting organized by RIMISP about “Market access strategies for the rural poor in Latin America”, on May 24.

2. The Knowledge Fair, that will be held from May 25 to 27, the last day only in the morning.

3. A post-event: The meeting of the Knowledge Management for Development Community (KM4Dev), on May 27 in the afternoon and May 28.

You are cordially invited to participate in the three events.

In order to register, please fill out the form that is available at: before May 14.

Dear all,

“All knowledge is connected to all other knowledge. The fun is in making the connections” Arthur Aufderheide, University of Minnesota.

By bringing together Knowledge Management professionals over two days from 27- 29 May, 2010 at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) in Cali, Colombia, and in connection with theCGIAR-FAO Share Fair (same location, 25-27 May, 2010) the KM4Dev community will contribute to develop a strong KM4Dev movement in Latin America and Caribbean (LAC). Specifically we hope to:

• Identify, initiate, and foster collaborative relations and professional friendship among people who work with knowledge management for development in Latin America.
• Offer a space for collective learning and knowledge sharing among the participants (learning labs)
• Contribute to the creation/strengthening of a core group in the Spanish speaking community in KM4Dev.

This is an invitation to all members of this community to participate, and promote the event among your colleagues and networks. It is also an invitation to organizations who work in LAC to provide funding. Please read the concept note of our initiative here:
