Hello all,

I am compiling all kinds of great resources on using social media to promote African knowledge about climate change adaptation. The crux of this assignment is really about a great introduction about social media (but of course, any resource scoring also on 'promoting African knowledge' and 'climate change adaptation' would be wonderful...

Any idea about useful resources?

Dear Km4dev members:

This is to humbly remind you to participate in the survey on knowledge
sharing within VCoPs. I will really appreciate if you take a few of your
minutes to fill in the questionnarire (see the link below) as I have got
a deadline and as my success in my doctoral research project depends on
your participation and focuses on km4dev VCoPs. (NB - thank you very
much for those who have already filled the survey).

VCoPs. If found applicable the model could be used for further research
in this field, for example approaches to improve the efficiency of
information and knowledge sharing, especially the tacit and explicit
knowledge, within a particular VCoP. The results of this research will
form part of a doctoral thesis.

The attached questionnaire should take approximately 20 to 25 minutes to

I am not Dutch, but I have had some experience with Social Media usage among a group of students in Abidjan, so I hope you don't mind me sitting in on some of your discussions.

Hi Claudia and others. Let's revive the discussion on this forum! Anand, maybe you can throw in a question or two that can enliven the discussion. Maybe Claudia can tell us something about OpenAid.

Hi everybody, just a short not to introduce myself. I joined the group ALTHOUGH I am not in the NL - but I am VERY interested in social media and development so I hope you will bear with me. Last year I created OpenAid to promote aid transparency and one of my main interest is the use of social media for local accountability at the project level.
