knowledge management for development

Core group

KM4Dev is largely a volunteer effort. As we grew, it became clear that we needed some sort of governance group to support the community and help respond to its needs. Hence, the Core group was created in May 2004.
The Core group interacts via a Dgroup --  km4devcoregroup[AT]dgroups.org -- which you can also use to contact its members.

All Core group meetings are documented here

Currently the Core group consists of 15 community members acting in a voluntary capacity as a steering committee for KM4Dev. Core group members contribute their time and energy towards supporting the needs of KM4Dev members and building the community. The Core group terms of reference are found here.

Hi guys...I have just joined the group and I need some advice. I work for a Financial/insurance company and I have been given a concept to establish KM in the R and D unit. With my little knowledge of the subject I felt this would be the correct platform for advice. Would any of you send me a KM strategy that I can model with? I have recently sent a request to IT for Enterprise Content Management - KM portal and I have been requested to submit a business requirement document. Would you have a template of such? please respond to zweli.ndayi@gmail.com

Comment by BENJAMIN ABUGRI on January 7, 2013 at 7:59am

Greetings colleagues and thanks for accepting me on board. I will need some templates or information to help me design a KM policy for my organization. I am new in the KM community and looking up for your support to work effectively. Thanks

Dear all,

Apologies for the non-response to those who have offered support. The new Core Group terms of reference have just been drafted and sent to the KM4dev discussion group (please join the email discussion if you haven't done so, this is where the interaction is!) : http://wiki.km4dev.org/wiki/index.php/Draft_Terms_of_Reference_%28T...

As mentioned in the ToR, you don't have to be on the Core group to be an active member of KM4Dev. You can still take initiatives and volunteer to take the lead on activities, if you find the Core group responsibilities are too much.

I will be writing to follow-up with those who still are interested in being on the Core group, and those who would like to volunteer for individual activities.

I fully support Naina for the core group membership.
Comment by Naina Pandita on July 26, 2011 at 5:28am
I do not see a representative from Asia.  With my expertise, I would request that I am considered as a core group member.

Hi, I'm glad to be here.

Hi everyone, I am willing to help the core group.
Comment by John Smith on April 16, 2011 at 1:18pm

I would really like to encourage everyone in the core group (or people who have retired from the core group) to participate in CPsquare's "field trip"... it will be a great opportunity to learn about KM4Dev history and learning dynamics.  Here's more information about the event:

Drop me a line at john.smith@learningalliances.net if you'd like more details.  Thanks!

I would like to join the core group.
Comment by Muhammad Jahangir on March 4, 2010 at 4:05pm
We will like to share knowledge in WASH sector to start with. So reinventing the wheel is avoided. secondly many groups worjing in isolation towards the same objective of improving water , sanitation and Hygiene condition in south Asia , share their experiences and help each other. we are a group of Fresh Water Action Network in south Asia. FANSA -Pak. but not able to initiate it properly.

Hi, M. Jahagir

Thanks for expressing interest! What is it that you would like to do in your region? Anyone can join our global online community, but some members have formed local groups which get together for meet ups and "local learning."
Comment by Muhammad Jahangir on February 21, 2010 at 3:01am
We in south Asia are perhaps the most deserving case for making use of this initiative. Some how we have a trend of not sharing our knowledge. Though the key to development would be the first publication of an idea or development.
Request a special program to make use of this idea by Pakistan, India, Bangladesh , Nepal, Colombo (SL).
We seriously agree that it (The KM) can alleviate many of our handicaps in development.
