KS/KM in a changing agricultural landscape: AgHuddle at KM4Dev 2009

At the KM4Dev workshop in Brussels (6-8 October), we will organize a thematic 'AgHuddle' for people interested in knowledge sharing (KS) and knowledge management (KM) in the agriculture sector.

Focus 1. KS and KM in changing organizations

All across the agricultural sector, knowledge, learning and innovation are emerging as key points where organizations need to invest and make a difference. Capturing, mobilizing, and sharing different types of knowledge and information - and putting them to good use - has moved up organizational agendas.

Focus 2. KS and KM enabling processes of rural change

Beyond our rather structured organizations and their particular concerns, we are also seeing an explosion of interest in the use of ICTs to facilitate different aspects of knowledge sharing and application in and with rural communities - and among the people who interact with them.

For organizations working in agriculture, for agricultural change processes:
  • What positives can we already build on in agricultural KS/KM? What goes well and has proven results ...?
  • Which areas of agricultural KS/KM do we need to pay more attention to? What doesn't go so well and how could we improve ...?
  • Which developments and innovations in agricultural KS/KM look most promising? Upcoming best bets ...?
  • What take away messages would we share with/offer to the other thematic huddles?

Hi Peter, to respond to this question briefly, "How do we best work with multiple knowledge producers, uses, users, communities and types of knowledge?"
We need to first identify and recognize the presence of the multiple knowledge sources; recognize the role of the knowledge producers; and create the awareness of these sources among the producers and between the producers and the users (if they are different).
