A News Agency will be formed very soon to collect the news and take steps to immediately disseminate through community radio.

I would highly appreciate if you take a just a minute to answer just one question at the following link (…Continue

I happen to be on the Core group since some years. I participated in 3 KM4Dev face to face events. I sit on the 3 persons steering group of the CTLab activity running this year (2012). I volunteer regularly as monthly KM4Dev administrator (mainly to manage the dGroup). I think I contribute regularly on various conversations within our community...
There is the word: community
And yet... after so many years I'm still not sure whether KM4Dev is, what I…Continue
In his recent blog post, Seth Earley suggests that economic development and success in the modern age depends on knowledge sharing and that knowledge sharing depends on library science and search-based applications. Do you agree?
I did a short online questionnaire on the above outlined question and spent some time thinking about the results. The result gave a pretty one-sided picture that could trigger some interesting thoughts with some of you.
I would be very happy to hear them. Find the related blogpost …Continue

After six wonderful years of engagement with KM4Dev, I decided to pay a tribute to it and to explain what it gives me and what I give back to it.
Perhaps some inspiration for you too?

Dear members, has anyone of us ever held parallel sessions in Knowledge sharing forums? I have to facilitate one on school sanitation and I am not so sure how it is done yet I want it to be very successful. Could any one share on this
Just want to ask if there is anyone who have better ideas on how to effectively capture tacit knowledge, i need to hear people's experiences when undertaking this task.Is it something you can say its easy to do or its hard to a certain extent?
I am still a student of KM at the University of Botswana,i was wondering if there is any model for KM strategies or this is something that develops and changes as new knowledge is discovered?
I am undertaking a research project at the Department of Information Science at Loughborough University, UK. The project has the working title:
'facilitation of knowledge exchange in international development'
This is, of course, a very broad 'statement' but the project is in its infancy and would benefit from everyone's contribution since it is trying to follow a participatory philosophy. At this early stage it would be great to hear people's take on the issue…Continue

Dear Genuine members I saw no other way to communicate to you all about this subject, But could the people in charge of this group block this person called Nelly Nkaba, She/He is writing wierd messages to all of us and it is a scam after googling this name I found that the same email message is written to a number of people who have also epressed their concerns. I hope you all block this person as soon as you recieve her messages or his messages
Following Nancy/Gauri's discussion and the recent Lucie/Charles discussion on 'moving away from knowledge products to knowledge sharing processes', here is a topic that is little explored but could have great potential in helping all of us develop an enabling environment for change, learning, critical reflection, sharing etc. This third episode in the new discussion series means that I will be collecting answers to the question for the next two weeks and then will provide…Continue

A lot of people, when they first join KM4Dev, either as they subscribe to the mailing list or to this Ning site, are wondering how they can contribute to it, what they can do etc.
This KM4Dev wiki page offers some options, any other idea or question you have is welcome to make these guidelines even more helpful.

Greetings folks on the km4dev Forum:
As you may know, we are now three months post K* 2012 conference. The K* Initiative was initiated by the United Nations University Institute for Water, Environment and Health and was born out of the growing realization that across the world there are individuals and organizations working on Knowledge Mobilization (KM), Knowledge Translation and Transfer (KTT), Knowledge Brokering (KB), Knowledge Adoption…
