The recent KM4DEV space in Geneva was inspiring and very educative.
I thank most sincerely the HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation and other technical people who volunteered for their technical support b and success of the event. We will continue to refer and use the knowledge shared in this conference for sometime to come.
I will continue to encourage my colleagues from the south of fhe globe, mainly in Africa to forge partnerships in the area of KM4DEV and in areas that may have positive impact to the lives of the people.

Yes Mada that's true the reason being that social media is the in-thing nowadays especially for sharing and exchanging information and Knowledge, so KM plays an important role in the development of ICT in Africa.
Knowledge management plays a big role in the development of ICT in africa. This is so because the more you gain more knowldge, the more you are able to come up with diferent ways of solving problems that we encouter in africa; whether in agriculture, economics, science et.c. Hence there is need to acquire more knowledge through friends, in school or internet to accomplish this.
Doing a Computer Based program in school(University Of Botswana ) we are more interested in our course even though we are exposed to other courses like economics, management and mathematics, i have realized that KM is an important course and that most of us as tertiary students we need it as we are about to be part of the industry world, so my point is every student have to be taught about knowledge Management.
I agree with you Mr Jackson, in May I was on attachment for two months being my first time to experience the work environment,to my observation apart form an organisation being small or big, knowledge sharing is something that is not considered, only work issues, for example when there is a project initiative the will be meeting about that project and not giving time to knowledge sharing which is imperative in an organisation. Again Knowledge sharing help build relationships among employees.
True that Mr Peter,internet connectivity is vital
Thank you Dean for your critical observation. I think something has to be done on affordability of Internet, Mobile phones to the poor countries in Africa if we are to catch up with the developed countries in the west. Otherwise we will continue to experience information and knowledge sharing gaps in Africa.
How is Knowledge Management important to you as an individual?
How is knowledge management important to the IT professionals??
Social media is the key nowadays in everything, so I agree with what Mr Mulozi is saying because this is where majority of people spend most of their time sharing and exchanging information, trainings are needed especially for those who don't know the significance of using social media, hence sharing of knowledge and resources will be made easier. The challenging part is the infrastructure as he stated,but i think with the equipment that is available a difference can be made.
