Register now for the KM4Dev Meeting and the Knowledge Share Fair, Cali Colombia May 24-28

We are pleased to invite you to attend the KM4Dev meeting and the
Knowledge Share Fair for Latin America and The Caribbean which will
take place in the week of May 24, 2010 at the International Center for
Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) in Cali, Colombia.

About the KM4Dev meeting

This year the event will be connected to the below-mentioned CGIAR-FAO
Knowledge Fair. During that event many cases and experiences will be
shared among participants. This will enable the KM4Dev meeting to build
on what precedes it and move the network to a higher degree of
development. Therefore the program will have two core threads. The
first one will provide the space to strengthen the network itself and
to identify new projects and collaborative actions within the region
and beyond. The second one will provide a space to explore new
techniques, methodologies and approaches to knowledge sharing and
information management processes. The agenda is included here:

About The Fair

We received more than 90 proposals from more than 10 countries. Therefore
we have been able to design a most interesting tentative agenda which
you can preview at:

The event is being organized by the Information and Communications
Technology and Knowledge Management Program (ICT-KM) of the
Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), the
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the
Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), the
Knowledge Management for Development Community (KM4Dev), and the
International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT).

This Fair emphasizes Latin America and the Caribbean as a region, and has the following objectives:

· Demonstrate how formal and informal knowledge sharing improves the effectiveness, efficiency, and impact of working activities

· Share and learn from each other’s good practices

· Provide staff from different organizations with the opportunity to get
to know and learn from each other to create linkages and networks for
future collaboration

· Develop ideas to support and enhance knowledge sharing within and across organizations

· Experiment with tools and methodologies for knowledge sharing

The Fair will be structured in exhibition stands, hands-on training, and
facilitated sessions with interactive modes of presenting the
activities, focusing on experiences and lessons learned (see attached
tentative agenda). Participants will explore how different face-to-face
knowledge sharing methods and e-tools can be applied to their work and
present innovative solutions that encourage effective collaboration,
networking, and leadership.

The week consists in 3 events:

1. A pre-event: The meeting organized by RIMISP about “Market access strategies for the rural poor in Latin America”, on May 24.

2. The Knowledge Fair, that will be held from May 25 to 27, the last day only in the morning.

3. A post-event: The meeting of the Knowledge Management for Development
Community (KM4Dev), on May 27 in the afternoon and May 28.

You are cordially invited to participate in the three events.
