a global community
I've been remiss in connecting with activity on this Ning Site. More to come, but I wanted to post a bit of context, starting with an introduction of me in this role that Pete Cranston posted on the Dgroup list on September 25:
As I am sure you all remember, there have been three pieces of research work carried out as part of the IFAD support to KM4Dev
The next step is to bring together the learning from those pieces of work as the foundation for doing some more thinking about a longer-term strategy for KM4Dev.
The Core Group decided to ask some people who've been active in the network and who have relevant experience whether they'd be interested to do a synthesis study. After a short selection process we chose John Smith.
You have probably noticed that John Smith has begun engaging publicly with the network as he develops his ideas and draft report. So this email is to encourage everyone to respond with your contributions and ideas in the next several weeks with the understanding that they will be folded into the work he is doing on our behalf.
The main location where I'm gathering materials, interim results and conclusions will be on the Wiki: http://wiki.km4dev.org/IFAD_Funded_Synthesis_Project
I'll post here again. Stay tuned and please let me know what you think.
