“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
the CGIAR-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
