KM4D journal issue on learning, KM and collaboration in the water sector

The December issue of the Knowledge Management for Development Journal is dedicated to effective (and potential) contribution of approaches to learning, collaboration and knowledge management (KM) to the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector, and the integrated water resource management (IWRM) sector.

Check out the full call for papers.: http://km4meu.wordpress.com/km4d-journal-december-2009

Although we recognise the limitations of thinking in terms of sectors when we are trying to address problems of fragmentation across actors and sectors, it is the first time that the KM4D journal focuses on issues within one sector and this in itself is interesting to not only focus on learning approaches and tools but especially on how they are applied and addressed in one particular context (the water sector here) and also to focus on the wider issue of how the sector operates as a whole and how can learning, knowledge management and cooperation help it work more effectively.

This journal issue will relate very well also to the upcoming annual KM4DEV event which is likely to focus on cooperation within development sub-sectors, and again between them. Some ideas for that annual event are available on the KM4DEV wiki: http://www.km4dev.org/wiki/index.php/KM4Dev_2009_Gathering.

thanks so much for posting this and bringing to discussion such an urgent topic. so glad more and more people get intereted and involved into this important business. I personally used to read a lot on the topic (downloaded some books and read great articles by torrent files search engine ) and am much concerned about haw things with water resource management are nowadays. much work is to be done in this sphere, but drawing attention to this is already the first step to success
