Basic information

"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.

Alfonso, thanks for sharing this report. It is very interesting.

I want to share with the group a recent report I did for UNESCO on Communication for Development in the UN System in Uruguay (the report is in English). Similar assessments are being done in other countries and regions in preparation of the UN Round Table on Communication for Development which will take place next year (2011) probably in India. The link to the report is:

Dear All,

Bonn has made its first step to engage staff working in the field of KM to an informal KM get-together. I would like to share a blog post with you written by Benjamin Kumpf about his interesting story during our first KM-get together of UN-agencies in Bonn.

You can check it out at:

I've established a Yammer community for informal collaboration among currently employed UN staff members and consultants (Yammer is a microsharing tool similar to Twitter but with closed membership). This can be accessed at:
I will add anyone who has a valid UN e-mail address. (Note this is just an informal community I set up to allow people to have a safe space for internal collaboration within the UN, not an official UN sponsored project)

Margaret, I would be interested in finding out more about the KM project you refer to

Greetings everyone and all the best for 2010! Looking forward to learning more about how your organizations' KM initiatives are going. With regard to Sophie's comment, the ILO is currently evaluating a four-year KM project carried out by its child labour elimination programme (IPEC), which has a worldwide staff of about 450 operating in 80 countries. A great deal of emphasis was put on preserving institutional memory (databases, KS web platform, resource kits) because of the high staff turnover inherent in technical cooperation programmes and the need to give field staff and partner agencies easy access to information, knowledge and experience. It will be very interesting to see to what extent those participating in the evaluation think this has been useful and made their work easier.
Any other UN agencies evaluated initiatives dealing with HQ-field sharing recently?
Comment by Nadejda Loumbeva on December 26, 2009 at 8:57pm
Sophie, thanks! Your discussion idea (ie, how to share knowledge and I guess also what knowledge to share with regards to work our Organizations do in the field) is spot-on. It is precisely what the work of most of our Organizations is driven by. I guess for this to work well it would have to well integrate with the One UN Agenda. Look forward to reading others´ views on this ... Happy New Year to all from me too! Nadejda
